How can I navigate to the MacFamilyTree 8 backups folder in the Finder?

Per default MacFamilyTree creates backups of the database when it is migrated to a new database version. This can be the case when a new version introduces new features.

If there have been errors during the migration to a new database version, we might ask you to send us the version of the database before the migration from the backups folder. This is how to navigate to the backups folder in the Finder.


1. Open the "Go to Folder" menu




2. Enter the location of the MacFamilyTree backup folder


~/Library/Containers/com.syniumsoftware.macfamilytree8/Data/Backups



3. Send us the file
