Made for Mac

It's fast, reliable and has beautiful design - here's why: MacFamilyTree is not just another Windows app that's been ported over to Mac OS X. Developed exclusively for Mac OS X, MacFamilyTree draws on a wide range of core technologies from Apple's latest operating systems. Many user interface elements are based on Apple's CoreAnimation technology, making sure that MacFamilyTree is a pleasure to work with on your Mac.
Core Data, a modern database technology, is ready to take on even the biggest challenges - your Mac will run smoothly even when handling a 10,000 person family tree. Recent Macs running OS X 10.7, 10.8, 10.9 or 10.10 Yosemite execute MacFamilyTree in 64-Bit mode to harness even the tiniest last bit of your Mac's computing power.

What customers say

I’ve owned most of the popular Mac genealogy programs and am blown away by MFT. It’s by far the best, most flexible and easy to use app I’ve had. Great product and outstanding support. I wrote this morning with a question and received an answer in less than 5 minutes. Amazing.

Finally, a user friendly genealogy app that is enjoyable for me to work with on my iMac. The price is right. And, you own it - without having to rent it. Version 7 is the upgrade that I have been waiting for. There are so many options for making reports, and website building, and working with photos within this new version. Go for it for just 50 dollars. This is my favorite genealogy app, now.

I have been using MacFamily Tree since the beginning and have watched as it has improved over time. It is exceptionally easy to use, a delight to view (many applications can get a job done but to do it with visual appeal takes more than just writing good “code.”). I love this app and especially appreciate the ability to use it on my iPhone and iPad. These folks do a terrific job! Thank you to the developers for writing an exceptionally useful app! I use it exclusively and will continue to do so with great pleasure!
