Happy birthday, MacFamilyTree, which has grown to version 8

Happy birthday, MacFamilyTree, which celebrates its 18th birthday. In honor of the achievement, Synium Software has announced MacFamilyTree 8.0, an update to the genealogy software for OS X. 

The software lets you explore your personal family history and discover your origins, your ancestors and how your family has evolved over the course of time. Version 8 assists you entering your data and researching your family tree, offers dozens of printable and configurable charts and reports, and publishes your family tree as a book or web site with a few clicks.

Both MacFamilyTree 8 for Mac and MobileFamilyTree 8 for iPhone and iPad (available separately at the Apple App Store) have been completely overhauled. MacFamilyTree 8 comes with a redesigned interface, a new Interactive Tree, new "Smart Filters,” and more.

MacFamilyTree 8 requires a Mac with OS X 10.10 Yosemite or El Capitan. MobileFamilyTree 8 requires an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch running iOS 8 or later.

MacFamilyTree 8 for OS X is selling for an introductory price of $29.99 (a 50% discount). MobileFamilyTree 8 for iOS is available for $9.99. To synchronize the database between different devices you'll need a free iCloud user account. The app is exclusively available via the Mac App Store. Research via FamilySearch requires a free FamilySearch account. No subscription fees apply.
