The following is an extract from a recent announcement from Synium Software:
FamilySearch is the world's largest collection of genealogical data online. It offers more than two billion person entries, which you can browse in MacFamilyTree 7 without any additional cost or subscription. Use MacFamilyTree 7's FamilySearch Family Tree to search for additional ancestors and optionally share the results with millions of other users.
Version 7.1.4 of MacFamilyTree is the only application for Mac that has received the highest possible certification level "TreeShare" to date. We'll gladly take this opportunity to give you a brief overview of the endless possibilities FamilySearch offers.
FamilySearch is a free service that can be accessed directly via the MacFamilyTree interface. The FamilySearch database offers several billions of genealogical data and an abundance of information from newly digitized archives is added every month. This includes ship passenger lists and records from registry offices, registers, cemeteries and many more. However, records are restricted to deceased persons for reasons of data protection.
You can use FamilySearch in two ways:
Your first option: Use FamilySearch as a pure research tool and merely download data. In this case, none of your family tree information will be shared.
Option number two: Optionally upload information to FamilySearch and share your research with other users. For data protection reasons, however, you can only share data of deceased persons.
MacFamilyTree 7 requires OS X Lion or later. OS X Mavericks is fully supported.
MacFamilyTree 7.1.4 is a free update for all customers who bought MacFamilyTree 7.0 or 7.1 and can be downloaded for free at the Mac App Store. The full version can be purchased for $49.99 at the Mac App Store.
MobileFamilyTree 7 will be updated to version 7.1 in March 2014. This will be a free update for all customers who purchased MobileFamilyTree 7.0.
