MacFamilyTree is our highly popular genealogy application, and sports a stunning, configurable user interface, animated charts, editable reports and powerful print and export options. Visualize migration of your ancestors over centuries and continents: built-in support for Google Earth to research geolocations is also part of our version 5.
Continuously Evolving Performance
The new 'Virtual Tree', a powerful 3D view to browse and visualize your entire database. Support for iPhone and iPod touch synchronization is also a first for Mac genealogy (requires companion application 'MobileFamilyTree', available separately).
Based on more than a decade of experience, MacFamilyTree 5 may well be the most advanced genealogy application for the Mac and thanks to GEDCOM ensures reliable exchange of genealogy information across OS boundaries. MacFamilyTree offers easy web page creation and is smoothly integrated into Apple's MobileMe and the exclusive MacFamilyTree.com Internet service.
MacFamilyTree 5 has been completely redesigned to leverage Apple's powerful programming and operating system technologies like Core Data and QuickTime for high performance and flexibility.
MacFamilyTree 5 is a Universal Binary application and is fully compatible with Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger and 10.5 Leopard.
Top Customer Reviews
Having voiced these minor personal criticisms the program is very good. Data is easy to enter and retrieve. Editing data is also easy. Good value for money and would satisfy most amateur family tree hunters.
MacFamily Tree knocks the socks off all of them. Easy to use, intuitive, easy to create trees etc, well thought out and so easy to correct any mistakes you've made.
5 stars and recommend it to anyone - even first-timers
After years of dull PC ancestry programmes that do the most basic of tasks i've finally found one that joins my mac in the 21st century.
Anyway, still early days - I have elected not to import my GEDCOM files from Family Tree Maker as it was some time since I last looked at this and although I had hundreds of names on there I decided the best way to learn was to start from scratch with my husband's family.
I am astonished that a previous reviewer said it was too difficult to use - especially as they describe themselves as a 'mac user'. Anybody with even the most basic comprehension of Mac OS will have zero trouble using this software. The same reviewer complains about the inability to print trees - he/she is wrong. You can print trees - simply choose to view a descendant chart or ancestor chart or one of the other views - then choose the person whose heritage you want to see and print. Admittedly the views are quite basic but anyone who has tried to sketch out their family tree on paper will know that a comprehensive tree involving relatively distant relations doesn't lend itself to a two dimesional format particularly easily. If you want a fancy looking tree to put above the mantlepiece or in the dunny then this isn't the software for you. If you want to be able to make an easily accessible and comprehensive record of your genealogy on your mac then this does the job. You can also add photos, publish trees on CD or even the web and use the iPhone version - though I haven't tried any of this yet.
