Enter your first person in the Family Tree Editor

After creating a family tree in the previous video, let's start with entering your first person. If you research your own family's history, best start with yourself as the first person. You probably know your own relatives better than your cousin's or your spouse's.

It's highly recommended you do a little reading in MacFamilyTree's User Guide first so you know the basics concerning the Editors, Views, Reports and Export. To enter persons or edit their data, always click the Edit button in the left-hand column first. If that column's background color is purple like in the video, you're good to go.
