    Genealogy Program for OS X
    Bought my first MAC seven months ago. Installed Parallels on it so I could run an old windows version of Family Tree Maker for PC.

    Would like to go completely MAC by buying a genealogy program for MAC. Was going to buy Reunion but then Family Tree Maker for MAC came out. Been waiting to see a comparison view of both.

    Anyone here use either program? Or have any suggestions on which program is best for MAC.

    Thanks!!

    Moved to correct forum and edited title for clarity. What does this have to do with "Rumors and Reports"? Please read our forum descriptions before posting.

    Howdy. I have used Reunion for six years. Originally bought it to set a genealogy report in a book. Worked fine. Since then I have kept up with my family and my wife’s family. Easy, intuitive, and responsive forum. No problems, always does what I need.

    PAWriter II
    I started with Family Tree in 1991 on a DOS/Win 3.1 machine. Upgraded to Generations (by Sierra) in 1998. To get my gedcom data onto my iMac, I installed the freebie PAWriter II. (La Nopalera). It is a bare bones App, but it's as good as the 1998 Generations prog. When I decide to get serious again about genealogy, I'll look for an App with more features.
