iFamily for Leopard for Mac is an innovative genealogy program that lets you enter and view family connections in new and interesting ways. Whether you've just become interested in piecing together your family tree, or you've been working on it for many years, this app lets you record your family's history and important events, so that you can pass on your knowledge to future generations.

Because this program has so many features, the interface can appear quite cluttered. Once you poke around a bit, though, you'll find that the controls are highly intuitive. But because the program can do so much, it's worth taking a look at the thorough Help document provided with the app. What makes iFamily different from most other genealogy programs is that it allows for entries of both step and adoptive parents, as well as multiple spouses. And it also lets you isolate individuals, so you can view their specific part of the family tree separately. The app comes preloaded with the family tree of England's royal family, so you can get a feel for what the different views look like and how to enter and edit entries. When you're ready to begin your own tree, you'll see options for entering Date of Birth, Date of Death, Birthplace, Death Place, Birth Notes, Death Notes, Age at Death, and a Photo.

This app is free to try for 16 days, after which point you'll have to purchase it for $29.95 to continue to use it. If you have data in other genealogy programs, you can export it to a Gedcom file, and then import it into iFamily to save time. For anyone interested in tracing their family history, this app is a good choice and provides plenty of features to make the process as smooth as possible.

Developer's Description

Map your family tree on your Mac.
iFamily for Mac is a genealogy application for people who think differently. Whereas other genealogy software tends to emphasize the family unit, this software's focus is on each individual person. This distinction is subtle and is a feature of iFamily for Mac. In iFamily for Mac you can see at a glance whether an individual has more than 2 parents or more than 1 spouse. Parent-child relationships may be natural (the default), step, adopted or foster relationships. iFamily for Mac is simple to use and easy to navigate - it uses the latest Apple technology such as Cocoa and Core Data.
