In Topic: Rootsmagic for MAC--lost all my files--EMERGENCY

I have never used the RM version for MAC but run RM under Parallels on my MAC without any problems.

In Topic: Opinions Requested Legacy 9 DLX vs Roots Magic 7

16 February 2019 - 10:41 AM

I have not used Legacy Family Tree but considered it before I purchased Roots Magic.  I feel they are both good programs but chose Roots Magic over Legacy Family Tree since it seemed to be influenced more by the LDS Church in how it handled certain things.  Roots Magic has remained independent while Legacy Family Tree has been bought by My Heritage.  I am not a big fan of My Heritage since they seem to lack original historical records for the United States.  They use other sites' information and users' trees and then charge users to access that information.  Ancestry does the same thing but at least offers original historical records.  That is why I like the fact that Roots Magic has not sold out to a large genealogy company.  I purchased The Master Genealogist at the same time as Roots Magic but did not start using it since I was concerned about future support if I spent countless hours to input data.  I was very happy with this decision since The Master Genealogist is no longer supported. 

In Topic: SQLite Error 1 - SqlDatabase: Cannot perform this operation on a closed database

Ancestry hints are not working since disconnecting from Treeshare and uploading new tree to Ancestry.  Enable hints is checked and I am signed into Ancestry on RM.

Any ideas?

Thanks for the fix as I was having the same issue and couldn't resolve it.

In Topic: Using Parallels instead of wineloader more stable?

28 April 2018 - 02:29 PM

I use Parallels and Windows 10 with High Sierra and have no problems using Roots Magic for Windows.  I have not tried RM's

version for the mac using the wine platform.
