Synium Software has released the latest version of MacFamilyTree genealogy software. If you are new to using family tree maker mac software, I suggest that you download the free trial of this software to give it a test. You can import a GEDCOM file or start from scratch.
To start a family tree from scratch, click on the human icon in the second screen. From there, you can enter the information about the person you are adding, their picture, special facts, siblings, and children. It took me about twenty minutes to build a basic tree that included my family, husband, and children.
MacFamilyTree contains other solid features, such as report generators, searching, and exporting your trees. View your tree in a variety of different formats, from the traditional tree, a 3D tree, flowchart, etc. Add a variety of multimedia, including video, to add personality to the names on your charts.
Searching for missing information on relatives came up a bit short for me. The “search by web" feature took me to a paid site. In order to use the FamilySearch.org, you have to be a member of the LDS church.
Another great feature that I need to mention is the World History tab under each person’s profile. This tab lists all the important world events that occurred during every person’s lifetime.
Once you are finished with your family tree, you have the option of exporting it to your computer, the MacFamilyTree.com website, MobileMe, from the web to a CD or DVD, or MobileFamilyTree.
Other than the search issues, I enjoyed my experience with MacFamilyTree 6.0.4 and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for mac family tree software.
