A few of the researchers on BetterGEDCOM looked at RootsMagic (RM) and the other "extended" sourcing systems, too. On export, RM offers the user several options, including whether to export "RootsMagic Specific tags." This option is discussed only briefly in the RootsMagic Help file, "Creating a GEDCOM ...
