This weekend I heard from a friend in Florida and I am so pleased she has embarked on this journey while she still has family members to consult.
Yes, I gave her the appropriate how to begin lecture and then she asked about a Genealogy Software program. I'm a Mac and she's a PC. I use Reunion, but at Jamboree I received a lovely gift in my "Swag Bag" from Bruce Buzbee, President, RootsMagic Inc. (one of our GeneaHunks).
It was a fully featured copy of the RootsMagic Genealogy Software with the following note:
We hope you enjoy this complimentary, full-featured copy of RootsMagic Genealogy Software.
If you already have your own copy of RootsMagic, please feel free to give this copy away to a friend or as a prize in a blog contest.
If you don't feel like going through the trouble, please use the CD as a Frisbee and the packaging to line your birdcage.
President, RootsMagic Inc.
I loved the generosity and the note; so thank you Bruce. Your gift is making its way from Seattle to Florida to start another family historian on the ride of her life. I hope she becomes a faithful RootsMagic user.
