Last weekend I began diligently working on a set of Mac genealogy software reviews. I discovered that I have some groundwork to do. Determining what applications are out there that are still being actively improved proved difficult. There isn’t a recent list of them. Something had to be done! If I can’t find a list how are Mac genealogists going to know what options exist?
I just finished creating an online survey of Mac genealogy software capabilities. I sent it out to the makers of Heredis, iFamily for Leopard, MacFamilyTree, Ohmigene, Osk, and Reunion. My intent is to compile these into a table and make it available on this site. My reasons for doing so are:
- helping Mac genealogists make informed decisions
- improving genealogy software on the Mac
- supporting people new to genealogy on the Mac
If you know of any other applications you’d like me to include, please leave me a comment below.
