I have watched the TreeShare video many times, but would like to know if there are any other videos that explain the many other things you need to know about using Rootsmagic 7 as it is now, not the old Rootsmagic 6.

Currently I am using the online Ancestry Tree as my main research tool and just making a new Rootsmagic Tree when I have added a lot of new information and people to my Ancestry Tree.


Years ago I used TMG and loved it. Then I used Legacy for a long time. I got lazy when FTM offered the Ancestry sync though, and used that until it was sold. I have the newest FTM but don't like it much and don't use it. That's why I bought RM 7, but I haven't really learned how to use all its features or understand all it can do. The page views in RM7 are so different from the Ancestry pages that it's like a foreign country, but i think I have found where all the info from the Ancestry views end up in RM now. But I need to learn a lot more to feel comfortable using RM.


I haven't been able to find any other current RM7 videos, although the one video promised that more smaller videos about specific features were being made. I find that watching and re-watching videos is the best way for me to retain new knowledge now that I'm in my dotage. I still make notes while watching, and refer to them later. But just reading from a manual is harder.


Thanks in advance for any help with this.

The older webinars are here - http://www.rootsmagic.com/Webinars/


The newer videos are here - http://rootsmagictv.com/


The older ones are still usable. When you see a screen difference there is a newer webinar or video that will demonstrate the difference.


We also have PDF Magic Guides you can download here - http://www.rootsmagic.com/guides/


You can get to all of these links from within the program under Help>Learning Center.  There is a Learn tab on the website too.
