@Mac0s10: Well?? Were those any help?

Yep, I'm sure they'll all come in useful when we get to that stage. I'm going through to my parents this weekend, first stage is to write down all that my mum and dad knows - only then will we know what gaps there are to fill in. As you can tell, we're at the very first stages of this and it's going to be a long, long process - of that I'm sure.

But I'll bookmark this thread and refer back when we need to get more information. So thanks for all your suggestions everyone.
;)

A bit pricey tho' at £70. iFamily for Leopard is about £19 and is quite substantial for the price

Does iFamily produce files that can be opened in Windows? Important if sharing with family who haven't seen the light.

Yes, Dave. Windows and Mac. DVD's can be made to which will also be read in Windows, although I have had no need to try it out

Five years since this thread was used but I'm not starting a new one.

I had Family Tree Maker (from Ancestry) on Windows but now I've swapped to manOS, I can't use it. That had six months free use of Ancestry included but I never used it. My brother did all the hard work and I just had a copy of his gedcom file.

I found this thread by searching to see if anyone had already come up with alternatives. I wasn't fussed on RootsMagic 7 even though it was free. Anyhooo, I've been looking to get back to having a tree on a Mac. I've tried a few demo versions (found from searching) and seem to get on with MacFamilyTree v8 best, so I'll probably buy that at £55 (App Store), unless anyone chirps up in the next couple of days. It imports standard gedcom and can merge trees, which is something I want to do to put my ex's side for the kids.

What I wanted to add is that the likes of Ancestry charge you to access their database but you might be able to get it free via your local library service. I can in Swansea. Ancestry and Find My Past. It just needs a trip to the library and access to one of their PCs. I'd rather my brother did all the work.

I'm currently being tempted to get the iOS version of MFT8 as well. Synium Software are offering that and Mac version for half price until the 27th. The data file can be shared/sync'd. Hmmm.
