Present your family tree
Entering your family relations comfortably is one thing - getting amazing-looking, informative and meaningful charts compiled automatically by MacFamilyTree is an entirely different story. MacFamilyTree's all new charts and reports will shed a new light on your family tree. These are powerful tools, no matter if you're only interested in your close relatives or if you would like to get an overview of your entire family. Creation of charts is instant so you don't have to wait before browsing your personal history.
With the current version of MacFamilyTree, restrictions on the number of displayable generations finally belong to the past. As a frequently requested feature, the new Tree Chart for the first time brings the capability to display all family members completely in one chart. Even complex trees with several hundred family members can now be displayed in context. Advanced options enable you to align separate branches of the tree to your likings.
This one is exclusive to MacFamilyTree and can not be found in any other genealogy application available today: navigate your family data in the third dimension! Follow down each of your family's branches and enjoy your entire genealogy database visualized in this truly innovative way for the first time. Change your perspective from close-up to the bird's eye view to see all persons and their connecting relationships.
Ancestor Chart & Descendant Chart
Two all-time favorites in the field of genealogy work are the Ancestor Chart and the Descendant Chart which of course play a vital role in MacFamilyTree, too. Gain a quick overview of your ancestors, whom you originate from or visualize any person's descendants. The number of generations MacFamilyTree can handle, including biographical data and image files, is almost unlimited and the graphical editor allows adjusting display properties as well as alignment, colors, fonts, sizes and other parameters to best suit your personal taste.
Hourglass Chart & Fan Chart
If you combine the best from both the Ancestor Chart and the Descendant Chart, what you get is the Hourglass Chart. Not only will you see a family member's descent but his or her descendants, as well, giving you a clear picture of a person's succession. View up to 200 generations at a time in this chart type. Print your charts in large formats, either by handing a PDF file to a professional printing service or by spreading a large chart over several single pages. After a bit of handiwork, you could end up with a wallpaper-sized printout. The Fan Chart, on the other hand, is perfectly suited for the examination of a persons's close family relations; up to 10 generations are arranged in circles around a person and of course these can be edited and printed, as well.
So you would like to know which winding path actually connects you and another person in your family tree? The all-new Relationship Chart might be just what you need then. Simply select yourself as the start person and someone else as a target person in the right-hand list and MacFamilyTree will immediately visualize all steps along the line which connects the two of you. The Relationship Charts, you might have guessed by now, are highly adjustable and can be printed on multiple pages, making them suitable for a great number of situations.
Diagrams are all well and good, but what if you're really interested in the entire relevant information about a person or family condensed into an easily readable format? Don't miss the Reports section in MacFamilyTree then. Easily accessible formatting options, inclusion of photos and cut-down charts in the reports, as well as printing and export features let you optimize representation of your relatives' data for great detail as well as for gaining the broad perspective. Choose from a broad selection of report types: Person Report, Family Group Report, Kinship Report, Places, Events, Birthdays, List of Persons, Marriage List Report, Narrative Report, To Do Report, Sources Report or the all new Ahnentafel Report.
Have MacFamilyTree write your biography! The Narrative Report is derived from a person's data you entered earlier and it will create a written report about the relationships and events in his or her life. Optionally, these bits of information can be overlaid onto a slideshow, making it a much more informative experience than merely showing images. The more events you entered in your database, the more detailed the Narrative Report will be - which should serve as further motivation for you to research your family tree in even greater detail.
MacFamilyTree's Virtual Globe shows your family's steady spreading over the surface of the earth. Did some of your relatives emigrate to America some 300 years ago? Without having to manually search lists, you can simply find the answer on the Virtual Globe. All events like birth, graduation, marriage or emigration are automatically marked on the freely rotatable globe. Thanks to MacFamilyTree's new Places Editor, it's easier than ever to find and merge duplicate places, ultimately letting you single out the relevant results in the Virtual Globe more quickly.
MacFamilyTree 6 sports a more sophisticated statistics feature than its predecessor. Easily find out your relatives' average age at time of death or at time of marriage. Another way of looking at the existing information is determining the frequency of certain family names or how long after marriage the first child was born. Of course, statistics are fully printable, perfect for communicating with relatives who don't use genealogy software.
