Topics I've Started

I currently have around 1500 supporting images in support of the family history just over 1.1GB.

I am keen to link the appropriate images to my ancestor but I believe there is a 100MB max to creating a RM website. Is there any way I can get my data up online using the RM facility?

Starting data entry from oldest ancestor?

Ready to start putting about 230 odd family history into RootsMagic. I am putting in our family name history and would like to start from our earliest couple and build from there. Is there any trick to starting off with earliest records?

This will be the first time I use RM so apologies if it is a silly question.

I also have two seperate cases family line case where there are two marriages and again in both cases children where produced from both marriages. How do you record theses events?


Have I bought the right program?

I have created a blood line database following my family name as far back as I can. I have captured all the family members and their family offspring inside the database. I record the respective spouses but stop when that spur finishes the family name.

I hope that makes sense. Just wondering if Root Magic 7 supports such a database? I have tried to created the basis of what I want but I am struggling to work out how to input my database in the structure I am looking for?

I have 12 generations thus far, starting with a couple an the database feeds from there. I was hoping to start the RM7 input from there however you need to start from a single name. I want to start from a couple and only follow my family name ( recording spouses and offspring).

I then want to be able to post the family tree up online so I can have relatives login and look at the tree.

Am I able to achieve the above result? Hopefully I haven't jumped in where angels fear to tread!
