Your recent comment seemed like you thought I was awarding RootsMagic the innovator award for source templates following Elizabeth Shown Mills’ Evidence Explained when in fact Legacy 7 and Family Tree Maker 2009 had that “innovation” first. If you look at the winner of the 2nd Innovator award, you will see that I awarded it to Legacy 7 since they released the feature in June 2008. Family Tree Maker 2009 was released in August 2008 but didn’t include EE templates until the update in February 2009. RootsMagic 4 was released in March 2009.
I awarded RootsMagic 4 an innovator award for the citation quality feature that allows sources to be classified as original or derivative, information to be classified as primary or secondary, and evidence to be classified as direct, indirect, or negative.
Here is a link to all innovator award winners:
I hope that clarifies things. Thank you for your comments.
I use TMG and my expectations for the improvements that will be introduced into the long-awaited TMG V8 have now been raised.
I assume that these source ratings are for each citation, and not just for the source as a whole?]]>
