MacFamilyTree for Mac helps you research and record your family history information and turn it into charts, reports, or an amazing 3D Virtual Tree. Its visually appealing interface and Web search integration differentiates it from other similar apps, making it a good choice for any genealogy enthusiast. The standard GEDCOM format is supported for both import and export of data.

MacFamilyTree's sleek, streamlined interface will help you get started in no time, and if you ever need assistance, the comprehensive Help file will provide it. You begin by creating a new family tree and adding relatives and their photos and relevant information to it. To identify the roots of your family, you can use one of the online genealogical databases integrated into the app. You can also view sources, images, to-do lists, and locations. Additional neat features include a Research Assistant and a Family Quiz that helps you hone your family knowledge. You can also sync with iCloud, which allows you to access your family tree on any iOS device with a companion app installed. If you don't want to use iCloud for any reason, you can also sync your data to Dropbox.

In terms of interface, features, and performance, MacFamilyTree lives up to its promises. If you're looking for a comprehensive genealogy app that integrates manually-entered information with Web data, it's certainly the right choice for you. You can't save any data with the trial version, but you will get a good sense of the app's capabilities to see if the upgrade is worth the price to you.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of MacFamilyTree for Mac 7.0.13.
