For over 20 years, RootsMagic, Inc. has been creating computer software with a special purpose – to unite families. One of their earliest products, the popular “Family Origins” software, introduced thousands of people to the joy and excitement of family history.

That tradition continues today with RootsMagic, their award-winning genealogy software which makes researching, organizing, and sharing family history fun and easy. “Personal Historian” helps researchers write and preserve their ancestors’ life stories. “Family Reunion Organizer” takes the headaches out of planning important family get-togethers. RootsMagic’s newest product, “Family Atlas,” makes creating custom family maps fun and easy.

Ancestral Systems LLC, Booth 333

Ancestral Systems LLC is dedicated to providing solutions designed to help family history researchers gather, analyze, and validate clues and evidence about potential or suspected ancestors. The current main product is Clooz 3, a software program providing both data organization and analysis capabilities. Researchers can discover unknown persons of interest who show up in multiple documents; uncover relationships between people; and review documents coming from the same source. Clooz 3 lets users approach their family history using true document-based research strategies.

Clooz was originally developed by Elizabeth Kelly Kerstens, CG, of Ancestor Detective. In January 2012, Ancestral Systems acquired the program and has enhanced its capabilities. New features were added to offer a “Composite View” of people and documents, which lets the researcher explore how different people are associated with other people through the documents in which they were mentioned. Information from documents of various forms can be extracted into Clooz data-entry templates, and then exported to family tree programs such as Legacy Family Tree (RootsMagic, The Master Genealogist, and others are on the way in 2014). People listed in Clooz can be synchronized with those in other programs, and when a document is exported, Clooz transforms the information into events (birth, occupation, naturalization, etc.), allows you to add family relationships, and enters the source citation for each, all in one operation.
