Birth Date not showing up

08 December 2017 - 05:33 PM

I entered a date of birth for an individual and noticed on the pedigree screen in the info section at the top there is not a date..only location.  I tried restarting the program and same deal.  I generated a Family Group sheet and the date appears just fine.  But when I generated a Pedigree Report the date does not show up.  So far this is the first time I noticed this.  I will report as a bug.  Ideas?

Date Calculator Bug

I have a person that died on 25 Sep 1853 at the age of 66 y 11 m 25 d.  When I plug this in all I get is Sep 1786 for the birth...no day.  When I put in a date of birth, date of death and try to get it to work out to the age at death of above it skips from 66 y 11 m 24 d to 66 y 11 m 26 d.


I also plug in the same at the Ancestry website and it gives me a phony date of 31 Sep 1786!


So Roots Magic and Ancestry both have bugs regarding this.  I am guessing it should be 30 Sep 1786???

Flash Drives and a MAC

30 July 2017 - 09:22 AM

I have always used a PC.  I recently completed a photo scanning project that I am going to give to some family members in addition buying Roots Magic for them.


My questions are these.  One of the people uses a MAC.


Do I have to buy a particular flash drive for the MAC user?   If not, will she be able to copy my photos and Restore my RootsMagic Backup that will come from my PC?  I understand I will need to purchase the MAC version of Roots Magic for her.


Thanks, Rod
