Rene and RootsMagician,

 

Is there a way you can add Genesmarts to the Mac Bundle?  I have a registration key (V2) from back in the day and man I miss that program.

For those who do not know what Genesmarts is, it gives you places to check for additional information on your ancestors.  Here's some of the good information it suggests and it even tells you where to go get it.  It's a one button thing as it is a tool on your RM at the top.

 

For me the marriage between the two programs makes RM the most powerful research tool out there.

1. Cumberland North Carolina Tax List

 

Researching the Cumberland North Carolina Tax List makes sense because he was born in 1758 in Cumberland, North Carolina, United States and he was married in 1797 in Randolph, North Carolina, United States.

 

 

Some background on James McDonald [337]: He was born on 21-AUG-1758 in Cumberland, North Carolina, United States, and he died on 12-JAN-1848 in Morgan, Tennessee, United States. He married Sarah Cox [338] on 20-JUL-1797 in Randolph, North Carolina, United States, and had the following children: Elihu [1061] (ABT. 1799), George [1080] (1801), Allen [904] (1803), Amos [1081] (1808), Emilia [4587] (ABT. 1810), James [256] (1815), Nancy [340] (1818), Samuel [339] (1820), Sterling [1082] (1823), John [1083] (1827), and Sarah [341] (1827).

 

 

Here is a recap of some of the people and places that might be involved in searching a Tax List

 

 

State: North Carolina County: Cumberland Person: McDonald, James

 

 

Alt Spellings: MACDONALD, MCDONNALD, MCDONOLD, and MCDONLD

Spouse(s): Sarah Cox [338] Inlaws:

Parents: Brothers:

 

 

This record can be researched at the following location:

1)SaltLakeCity UT
This information might be found on 1 Microfilm at the Family History Library. The volumes for these are:

MFRoll:18682#2 Title:Listoftaxables1777-1793
The internal GenSmarts inventory id for this record set is 11081.

 

 

 

2. Morgan Tennessee County Land Transactions

 

 

Researching the Morgan Tennessee County Land Transactions makes sense because his child, Sarah McDonald [341], was born in 1827 in New River, Scott, Tennessee, United States and he died in 1848 in Morgan, Tennessee, United States.

 

 

NOTE: The city NEW RIVER related to this suggestion may is ambigous - a place by this name is known to exist in other counties in this state (according to govenment sources). Counties known to contain a place by this name: ANDERSON.

GenSmarts is sold separately in the RootsMagic store http://www.rootsmagic.com/Store/

Does it not run with CrossOver ?

RootsMagic doesn't offer discounts on GenSmart in our bundles because we are just a reseller. Any Mac version of GenSmarts would have to come from GenSmarts. Their website does say it will run using an emulator on the Mac.

 

GenSmarts is currently only on version 2 so if that is the version you have then that's their latest.

It will run standalone under crossover (wine bottle is what the crossover container is) you have to have a genesmarts bottle and a roots magic bottle.  What would be great is if there was one bottle with both roots magic and genesmarts together that way it will work integrated with one click just like it does under windows.

That would be nice but I think GenSmarts would need to have the same wrapper we have for RootsMagic or a native Mac version for us to attempt to work together. I would recommend you send this request to GenSmarts too at: support@gensmarts.com

Renee,

I'm very familiar with the mechanics of Crossover... you would have to get with Genesmarts and roll an install with RootsMagic / Genesmarts together... it would take some collaboration between the two of you.  It would be an amazing accomplishment.

I am confirming this enhancement request is in our tracking system. Since we are talking two separate companies users need to let GenSmarts know they are interested in them working with CrossOver to make the same type of wrapper RootsMagic is using. They would need to bare the cost of translating their program to run on the Mac. Not every Windows program can be translated, it all depends on what libraries they are using, Legacy Family Tree is a prime example. If GenSmarts can do that then we could look at working with them.

For it to work properly it would have to be in the same distribution install as Rootsmagic.  I can make a separate and workable bottle for genesmarts and rootsmagic, but for it to work you would have to have an install in the same wine bottle for both programs.  Then the Genesmarts button would work and it would make RM much more powerful for the MAC users.

 

Of course both programs run as advertised under Parallels and I can't live without Genesmarts it has found so many things I have overlooked.

Yes, I am not knowledgeable about this process at all, but I have added all your information for development to look at.

If you have Crossover, the first step is to choose to install Gensmarts in the same 'Bottle' as RootsMagic.

 

Gensmarts 2 is supposed to work in Crossover, but haven't tried personally as I don't use that software. - https://www.codeweav...ver/gensmarts-2

Does anyone know if GenSmarts is a 32 or 64-bit app?

32-bit is what's installed on my 64-bit Windows computer. It is a Windows only program.

Thanks, yes I know it's Windows only. But now I'm wondering if I had an emulator or something to run it if could I do that through Catalina or only through Mojave.
