Exclusively Developed for Mac
Fast, reliable, smooth - and truly a feast for the eyes: You'll notice right away that MacFamilyTree is a native Mac application, exclusively and perfectly tailored to Mac. Developed specifically for macOS, MacFamilyTree harnesses the advanced and powerful core technologies of Apple's latest operating systems. Thanks to CoreAnimation, the interface works incredibly smooth while providing a plethora of animations and interactive elements.
CoreData guarantees maximum processing speed, and SceneKit is the technology behind the visually striking Interactive Tree. As MacFamilyTree runs as a 64-bit application, it uses every bit of processing power. This is the type of genealogy that generations of chroniclers could only have dreamed of!

What customers say
I’ve owned most of the popular Mac genealogy programs and am blown away by MFT. It’s by far the best, most flexible and easy to use app I’ve had. Great product and outstanding support. I wrote this morning with a question and received an answer in less than 5 minutes. Amazing.
John Lilly on the Mac App Store
Finally, a user friendly genealogy app that is enjoyable for me to work with on my iMac. The price is right. And, you own it - without having to rent it. There are so many options for making reports, and website building, and working with photos within this new version. This is my favorite genealogy app, now.

I have been using MacFamily Tree since the beginning and have watched as it has improved over time. It is exceptionally easy to use, a delight to view (many applications can get a job done but to do it with visual appeal takes more than just writing good “code.”). I love this app and especially appreciate the ability to use it on my iPhone and iPad. These folks do a terrific job! Thank you to the developers for writing an exceptionally useful app! I use it exclusively and will continue to do so with great pleasure!
