For those family historians that use the excellent RootsMagic software, you'll appreciate that such is the amount of features and help available within the software, it's easy to miss something or not be aware of that useful feature or nugget of information that can really make a difference to your family research.
One such feature is that of 'Problem Alerts', the feature that scans everyone in your file to try and find any potential data entry errors (people born before their parents, etc) for everyone in your file.
Since making people more aware of this, the new 'Problem Alerts' feature has proved very popular! Here's more information and a short video from the RootsMagic blog that shows you how RootsMagic's Problem Alerts can help you to find potential errors in your data. Have you used the new feature and what did you think?
The 2013 'Readers' Choice Awards' winners have been announced by the website About.com. It was good to see my preferred choice of genealogy software, RootsMagic, do well in the reader awards. It is significant recognition following the launch of the version 6 of the software and shows RootsMagic is as popular as ever.
RootsMagic was formally declared the 'Best Genealogy Software for Windows' and was also voted in first place for the new RootsMagic App (for iPhone or iPad), voted top in the 'Best Online Genealogy or Mobile App' category.
