A new, easy-to-use interface that is beautifully arranged, and faster than ever before!

New Interactive Tree
Navigate through your family tree or add persons and events in the very same view. In case you use FamilySearch, the Interactive family tree displays all persons not yet in your family tree but available in FamilySearch’s giant database.

Associated Persons

Online Features & Collaborations

iCloud Integration
MacFamilyTree 7 now relies exclusively on iCloud to keep your family trees up to date on different devices. If enabled, MacFamilyTree 7's iCloud feature automatically synchronizes the data on your Mac with your mobile devices such as the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. The new „iCloud Drive“ is supported, too (iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite required).

If you wish to use your iPhone to continue a project you started on your Mac or vice versa, go right ahead! Edit any one person in your iPhone family tree, and the same information will appear instantly in MacFamilyTree. Handoff requires a recent iPhone or iPad with iOS 8 installed, and a recent Mac running OS X Yosemite.

Search and Share Using FamilySearch
Access the world's largest genealogy archive and its one billion entries. It's completely free - no additional cost or subscription fees!

Completely new Web Export
MacFamilyTree's Web Export has been completely re-written and has become more flexible and better than ever before. Publish your family tree as a webseite, either for free on or your own web server.

Improved GEDCOM Import and Export
The GEDCOM format is the one standard format that allows the exchange of genealogy data between different genealogy applications. MacFamilyTree 7 further improves GEDCOM import and export.


New Virtual Tree
The Virtual Tree has been rewritten from scratch, offering increased reliability and performance, and displaying even the most complex family constellations.

Virtual Globe 2.0
Maps in High Definition... and simply beautiful! The freely rotatable globe automatically displays all personal and family events such as births, graduations, weddings and emigrations

Name Distribution Chart
This completely new chart shows you the distribution of last names in your family tree and the changes that occurred over time

Figures in All Charts

Completely rewritten Reports
Define styles, background images and ornaments, create PDF files with just one click or rely on the vastly improved printing features including page layout settings. Export all reports in up to 16 different languages.

New Plausibility Report
Plausibility Report is a completely new feature that analyzes your family tree, and points towards possible erroneous entries. By using this feature you can discover inconsistencies, and easily resolve them.
