Finding a RootsMagic Mapping Program

Tricia's Question:
I am using Rootsmagic and would like to find a compatible mapping program cd that would allow me to track my familes migration.

Olive Tree Answer: Dear Tricia. I'm not a Rootsmagic user but the first thing I would do is go to their RootsMagic Blog Have a look around and see if your question is addressed there.

The blog post about Family Atlas may be just what you are looking for.

To quote from the RootsMagic Blog:

Family Atlas makes creating custom family maps fun and easy! You start with an interactive world globe that you can explore. Family Atlas lets you import your family data directly from RootsMagic or other genealogy software, and then create markers based on relationships, names, event types, and more. You can even hand-enter set of markers such as “Civil War Battles”, “Places Where John Smith Lived”, or “Family Vacations”.

If this isn't what you want write to the contact name given and ask for their advice. They're the experts.
