Version 7.0.4
Review by TripPati

Excellent - My mother spent years putting together our family's geneology with almost 11,000 persons listed representing 5000 families using 24 sources and it was saved as a .paf file. I could not access the PAF file using PAF software on my mac. I contacted MacFamilyTree to ask if PAF files were supported by MacFamilyTree and they said they weren't, BUT the tech person, Moritz Schwering from the Synium Software Support Team, said he'd be be happy to convert the files for me to gedcom files which can then be imported to MacFamilyTree. I emailed him the PAF file and he emailed me back the converted gedcom file. All of this transpired within one day. I can't praise the support team enough. I am just learning to use the MacFamilyTree and love it. I now have access to my family tree in many graphic formats. It is very intuitive, fun and extremely easy to work with.

Review by procritic

HUGE GLITCH - 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.
