MacFamilyTree will show you all important information on persons or families in a compact and elegant manner. Comprehensive formatting options for your reports, integration of images and illustrated charts as well as printing and exporting options provide you with the greatest level of flexibility - at your next family gathering, you'll not only be able to demonstrate all the details on a given relative, but you can also present them in a larger context. Choose between many options such as the Person Report, Family Report, Kinship Report, Narrative Report, Places List, Events List, Special Features Report, Person Analysis, Anniversaries, Person Lists, Marriage Lists, Plausibility Report, Source List, Task List, Map Report, Descendant Report, and more. All reports can be designed or decorated to your liking, and you can even add a coat of arms. It's also perfect for relatives from another country: All reports can be generated in 16 languages.

Family Books

Choose from numerous templates and styles and let MacFamilyTree create a book based on the information contained in your database. Books can be printed or exported as PDFs. You can choose between ready-made books containing family and personal data, or books entirely created by yourself, where you can design each page individually and to your liking. Family books are an ideal present for weddings, birthdays, and other occasions. Simply send the exported file to your trusted print shop to create a unique and special gift.

Turn your Family Tree into a Website

Select one of the numerous templates, click "Upload" and presto, you've published your family tree as a website including pictures, charts, statistics, and further information. You can optionally have MacFamilyTree upload the generated files directly to an FTP server without having to use an FTP application. Secure connections are, of course, also supported.

The web export feature offers numerous options - for example, you can exclude data pertaining to living persons or data marked as private from the export. You also get to decide which media, if any, will be exported. You can optionally upload your family tree to, a service we provide free of charge and with optional password protection so only those people you want to look at your research will be able to access it.

Edit Charts & Print Wallpapers

Need to customize charts? MacFamilyTree comes with an integrated chart editor allowing you to customize every part of a chart: re-position elements, alter fonts, colors and text or remove parts of a chart that should not be visible for the chart to exactly meet your expectations.

Also, you can use the chart editor to easily create large wallpapers on your home printer: Huge charts can be split up to a customizable number of pages in order to print out gigantic wallpapers.


MacFamilyTree lets you create detailed statistics about your family tree. For example, you'll be able to see the average age at which your ancestors got married or passed away. MacFamilyTree will also show you the frequency of last names in your family tree, how long it took after a wedding for the first child to be born or which is the month where most couples got married, and so much more. You can of course print any of the statistics and share them with your relatives on paper.


GEDCOM (GEnealogical Data COMmunication) is a universal exchange format for family tree data. Family trees exported as GEDCOM files can be imported by most other genealogy applications. MacFamilyTree is able to handle the GEDCOM formats of most widespread family tree applications, giving you the possibility to import and work with research results provided to you by relatives. This is exactly what GEDCOM was invented for: Share your genealogical research results with family members without tying them to a specific application.
