The Virtual Globe is the perfect tool to see how your family has spread across the globe in the course of time. Some of your ancestors set out for America some 300 years ago? The freely rotatable globe shows where members of your family settled and where your ancestors lived. The Virtual Globe automatically displays events such as births, weddings, emigrations or funerals. The convenient places function will swiftly provide you with the coordinates for all of these places so you can view them in the globe.
FamilySearch is the world's largest online collection of genealogical data. It offers more than six billion person entries, which you can browse in MacFamilyTree 8 - from the comfort of your home and free of charge. FamilySearch not only provides a huge database filled with personal and family data, you can also browse original documents and take a look at, for example, old monastery log books, shipping registers, court data or census data.
You can use FamilySearch in two ways:
Option number one: Use FamilySearch as a pure research tool and download data only. In this case, none of your family tree information will be shared.
Option number two: Optionally upload information to FamilySearch and share your research with other users. For data protection reasons, however, you can only share data of deceased persons.
FamilySearch is completely free of charge. A free registration is all you need to get started. FamilySearch is a service provided by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This is not by chance: As the members of the LDS Church – commonly known as "Mormons" – place great value on genealogical research, many of the most important genealogical services are linked to this church.
The statistics maps offer statistics on your family tree you've never thought about before. The global map shows you where your ancestors' longevity was the highest, where and when a large number of children were born and where the members of your family tree were buried. The Slide Show visualizes the development of individual statistics on a map. Lean back and let MacFamilyTree show you how your family tree evolved. Animated and on a high-resolution map.
Smart Filters - Intelligent Display
MacFamilyTree 8 offers the most powerful filters you've ever seen in a genealogy application. With the new Smart Filters you can now limit the number of records displayed to those that are relevant to your current research activities. They can be applied to persons, families, sources, places or to dos. This way, you can define a filter such as "Display all married men from Mayence that I've downloaded via FamilySearch and for whom media is available".
