I want to switch to MacFamilyTree from FamilyTreeMaker, Legacy, RootsMagic etc. How can I transfer my information?
You need to export your tree file from your previous application as a GEDCOM file. These files can be imported from the start screen or the file menu in MacFamilyTree. If you want to migrate from the discontinued Family Tree Maker, please have a look at this guide.
Do you offer a Windows Version of MacFamilyTree?
No, MacFamilyTree 8 does only run on Macs and we do not offer a Windows Version. You can exchange data with Windows users through the export of GEDOM files.
