​I just purchased Roots Magic and have not entered anything.  I also have a Family Search tree and I want to be able to merge everything in my Family Search tree into Roots Magic before moving forward adding anything new to Roots Magic.  Is this possible?

You can do an import from FamilySearch Family Tree. Always best to do it in a new blank database. Smaller imports at a time since it won't resume if the connection drops. Go to File>FamilySearch Central and login. Then click on the Import button at the top. This video will demonstrate how it works.
