My mother is also my cousin four times removed - and similar strange-sounding degrees of kinship
There will be times when one person in your tree is a relative in multiple ways – the direct line and some strange-sounding degree of kinship, that looks like an error. However, in most cases these kinships are both valid. If two cousins married a few generations ago, multiple relationships at the same time are the result. If you are absolutely sure that this cannot be the correct explanation, please check the family section in MacFamilyTree and look for empty or duplicate family entries. Delete entries you don’t want to keep and the multiple relationships should be gone. Hint: Deleting a family will not delete the family members, it just deletes the connections.

I bought MacFamilyTree 8 - why do I have to purchase MobileFamilyTree 8, too?
MacFamilyTree and MobileFamilyTree are two separate apps. While they work perfectly as a team, both apps are able to function without the iOS or Mac companion. If you use a Mac but no iPhone/iPad, you don’t require MobileFamilyTree. If you just want to pursue you family research on iPhone or iPad, you don’t require MacFamilyTree.
iOS apps always have to be purchased separately and Apple offers no way to buy a Mac and iOS app bundle at the same time. This is way you have to buy MobileFamilyTree separately. If you opt for MobileFamilyTree 8, you get a version that works on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch – one purchase, three platforms.
Does CloudTree work in iOS 9 or OS X 10.11 El Capitan?
No, CloudTree requires iOS 10, iOS 11, macOS 10.12 Sierra or macOS 10.13 High Sierra to work. If you’re synchronizing your devices using CloudTree, all Macs, iPhones and iPads must either run iOS 10, iOS 11, macOS 10.12 Sierra or macOS 10.13 High Sierra in order to download and upload trees to CloudTree.
Is there telephone support?
We do not offer telephone support since we are convinced that we can help you way better by sending screenshots or written instructions you can read again if necessary. Especially when it comes to very specific questions or technical issues, our support team has to consult the application’s developer. As you can imagine, our developers are not always available for answering questions like these. As soon as our support staff has the information you require, they will contact you instantly by email.
