What is an RMGC file?

An RMGC file is a family history database created by RootsMagic or RootsMagic Essentials, genealogy programs that allow users to track and share their family trees. It contains a SQLite-formatted database that stores information about a user's family. RMGC files store family members' names, ages, birth dates, death dates, and relationship to other family members, as well as other information.

Because RMGC files are formatted as SQLite databases, they can be read and edited using third-party SQLite database management tools. However, you'll likely have a much easier time opening and editing an RMGC file in RootsMagic or RootsMagic Essentials. RootsMagic Essentials is available for free and allows users to create and print a basic family tree. The full, paid RootsMagic program includes a number of additional features, including the ability to search for unknown family members, view your family tree as a timeline, and publish your family tree to the web.

How do I open an RMGC file?

You can open an RMGC file in RootsMagic or RootsMagic Essentials. To do so, select File → Open... from the program's menu bar.
