Work with an unlimited number of persons and devices on the same family tree. All changes are synced within seconds so everything you enter is immediately available on every other device. The only thing required is MacFamilyTree 10 or MobileFamilyTree 10 on all participant’s Macs, iPhones or iPads. Although all entries are synced via CloudTree, all your information is still available locally on your Mac, iPhone or iPad, allowing you to continue your genealogical research when your device is offline. CloudTree will automatically sync any changes once you reconnect to the internet.
One Family Tree, multiple Devices, multiple Users
Invite other users to work on the same family tree with you. Any changes will be synchronized and available on other users' devices in a matter of seconds. Looking at the change history, you'll be able to quickly identify which changes were made by which user. If you prefer, you can make your family tree available as a read-only version instead. Improved in version 10: CloudTree has been sped up tremendously, you are going to notice significant improvements while downloading entries.
CloudTreeWeb: Collaborate on the Web
One of the most common questions in recent years has been: How can I have my family tree edited by people who don’t have a Mac, iPhone, or iPad? Today we allow you a very first look at a long-term vision, namely CloudTreeWeb. This is much more than just a website, CloudTreeWeb can make the edit section from MacFamilyTree or MobileFamilyTree available to family members or friends as a web version. What’s special about that, you might ask? This variant also offers collaboration in real time, with changes automatically synchronized on all devices in seconds.
You’ll need an Apple ID to sign in, because it will directly access your entries stored via CloudTree. Only invited users will be permitted access to your tree via CloudTreeWeb, and these users can edit entries or even add pictures and notes after accepting an invitation to your CloudTreeWeb. Please note: Since CloudTreeWeb is fed directly with your CloudTree data, page loading and editing are sometimes slower than they would be the case with conventional websites.
CloudTreeWeb complies with the same immensely high data protection guidelines as CloudTree: No one but you can see the data, unless you invite others. Even then, only you and the invited participants will have access. Neither we nor others have the ability to view your entries.
How to use CloudTreeWeb: Log in to CloudTreeWeb.com with your Apple ID - or invite participants to CloudTree from within MacFamilyTree or MobileFamilyTree. They can either open your tree in MacFamilyTree/MobileFamilyTree or on the web. To anticipate the question: CloudTreeWeb will never replace our native apps, instead it serves as a supplement for users who are not on the Apple platform.
Only you decide what happens to your data
Apple is known for its high data protection standards. MobileFamilyTree's CloudTree Sync feature operates under the same strict standards since it relies on Apple’s iCloud infrastructure. Access to your family tree is restricted to yourself and only you decide who gets to see your data. Other people will only be able to view your family tree if you've sent them an invitation.
FamilySearch – Billions of Entries, Photos, Documents
FamilySearch is the world's largest online collection of genealogical data. It offers more than six billion person entries, which you can browse in MobileFamilyTree 10 - 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 or court data. You can use FamilySearch as a pure research tool or to work on large family trees together with other people.
