I've never seen such a comprehensive program that was so easy to start using. The author says that he thinks programs should be self-explanatory, and he doesn't want users to be forced to go to the help file. Each time you wonder about a feature, you just right-click on it and let the menu guide you. I entered several hundreds of ancestors, with many details and photographs, without any doubt about how to do the next step. You can click almost anywhere on the screen and find special guidance. Also I like the horizontal tree diagram. You can scroll it and zoom it, and it shows a tremendous amount of detail. Others have mentioned this, but I want to express appreciation for the program's author. He seems to enjoy responding to questions. Most of my questions were not about how to do something (which is mostly obvious) but to request new features--a few of which he has actually added!

I have been the family historian for several decades, have used many genealogy software programs and, without a doubt, iFamily for Mac is the best I've ever used.

The poster is not making some sort of joke. See this report about the developer's untimely death, and also his son's statement of his commitment to the application: http://blog.eogn.com/eastmans_online_genealogy/2008/11/keith-wilson-ri.html

The problem is that the developer died about a year ago.

Good software has a life of it's own sometimes. New Version (V2.522) is now released.

This is a really good program with numerous features. My only problem was customer service who seemed too busy to contact me as I waited and waited for a response. There is only 1 person who can answer questions if he gets around to it. When you are new to a program and setting it up you do not want to wait days for an answer. This forum is unlike many others which I have visited as people on it either do not know the answers or simply seldom reply to queries.

No. iFamily supports import and Export only from Gedcom (using the 5.5 standard.) Most commercial packages, (nearly all), will support Gedcom Export for use in iFamily.

I love iFamily! The program takes full advantage of my iMac's large screen. Its context diagram shows up to 6 ancestor generations for an individual, plus spouse/partner and children, and details below, all on a single screen. Easy imports/exports of GEDCOM files. Powerful comparison features. Great PDF/RFT reports. Neat HTML. I could go on and on. Perhaps the best thing about iFamily is that the developer, Keith Wilson, personally answers all support questions. Sometimes within minutes! And he is constantly developing new features, included in the very reasonable initial price. He's just released ver 2.402 iFamily for Leopard with totally cool sibling "card" features. I'm an IT professional. I know how hard it is to create quality software and support it. iFamily is 5 STARS on all counts.

The developer (Keith Wilson) is quite correct when he says that iFamily creates HTML web pages like no other genealogy application. This feature was crucial for me and I am very satisfied with the results. iFamily is a no bells and whistles software. It simply does the job efficiently. I have tried several Mac genealogy demo applications and iFamily came out as the best for my needs. And the price is right!

This program looks promising. However, why does it need to launch an installer? I would be much more inclined to install it if I could just drag and drop the program into my Applications folder - I do not understand why this program would need to have me enter my password to install files somewhere. Could you please explain? Otherwise, the ability to import files from old databases (GEDCOM, for instance) could be very useful for people still stuck on other or older programs.

Apple's preferred method of installing software is now to use an Installer rather than dragging the application (package) into the Applications folder. Keith
