I am new to rootsmagic8 have never used roots magic app. before. do I need to create my sources list one source at a time or is there a way to import sources from other programs such as family search or ancestry
If you download from Ancestry it will included an Ancestry Source Template. You will have to match the RM person in the FamilySearch Person Tools to someone on FamilySearch to add the sources from the Sources tab. Both Ancestry and FamilySearch use their own source template so you wouldn’t have much variety. There are source templates you can select from under the 3 dot menu on the Sources page but you need to fill them out. If you had a database already with sources you could go to File, Import Data, Import Lists to import them into a database.
