Customer Reviews


If you are migrating from another program, like I am, and are doing it by importing a GEDCOM file, you will have a huge problem. Most other apps use a Place field for where an event occurs. For example, you may have San Jose, Santa Clara, California. That will all be in one field. Unfortunately, this app separates the filed into four fields City, County, State, and Country. You will find the above example that the program will import that as Santa Clara appearing as the State and California as the Country. It doesn’t know the difference. Thousands of my names were imported this way and must be individually changed (thousands!) in order for most of the perks of this software to work (ie maps of all kinds, location data, and even printing up reports!—you name it). It just doesn’t work. And if you have foreign locations, it’s even worse because they don’t have states and counties in many countries. Using ONE field was the standard in all this kind of software in the past. But they realized they didn’t have a good way of looking up locations without the field separation. It makes the app unusable if you want to move from a different app and have done many names as I have. I’m sad I paid for this. Finally, the customer service is awful. I sent messages twice asking for help and the NEVER responded. Instead I got an email saying “thanks for subscribing to our newsletter—great—more spam.

Superb genealogy app

MacFamilyTree is a superb genealogy app. Don’t listen to people who claim that GEDCOM import doesn’t work - it works perfectly and I do A LOT of genealogical work with other members of my genealogy group. There has never been any problem with wrong assigments of states and counties in the USA.

Love the new Yosemite UI and all the new features Synium has added. The reports can be exported in every language you want, great for my relatives from other countries. FamilySearch is one of the best research services ever, found thousands of ancestors I could add to my family tree.

Customer support is fast and friendly, they were able to answer all questions I sent them so far.
