The best part about genealogy
is searching for ancestors
and finding friends.
Come to a place where we do both!

Calling All Roots Magic Users!
SCGS is pleased to host a Special Interest Group dedicated to the use of the Roots Magic Genealogy software program. Both members and Non-members are invited to join the monthly users’ group that meets on the 3rd Wednesday of the month from 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM via Zoom. Participants share their experiences, explore the many tools within the robust program and aid each other in the use of the Root’s Magic software. Most users have moved to Roots Magic 9 but some are still using earlier versions. Members use either Windows or Mac versions of the software.
If you would like to join the monthly meeting and also participate in our group email exchanges please send a request to: firstname.lastname@example.org
