Genealogy research time is limited and valuable. So much so that many family historians and genealogists skip right to adding and editing data rather than exploring and setting options in their genealogy database software. This can be a mistake because there are time saving treasures buried in there.
For instance, the default start up behavior in RootsMagic 3 is to return you to the pedigree view with the root person selected. I find that having the program start up where I left off last time—with the person and view—is more efficient. In this video I show you how to set the options in RootsMagic 3 to achieve the same efficiency as well as walking through the other selections in the database options dialog.
