I'm interested in finding user-friendly software for a Mac that has good graphics to document my family tree (my parents and their ancestors were from China).  

I saw a review that highly rated Gramps 3.31.  After using it a little bit and generating a couple of reports, I'm not sure it is what I'm looking for (in the user friendly department, or with respect to their graphic reports.  Does anyone have any recommendations?  Is Reunion 9 for Mac or Family Tree Maker 2 (pricey at $99 and $70 respectively) any good?

I use macfamilytree.  It is affordable and it is easy to use.  I really like it.  If you go to their site you can watch some videos on how it works, I also think you can download a trial of the software.

Hi Alisa,

I do not have a Mac but when I search on Google I find MacFamilyTree  which, by the looks of it, could be user friendly.

It does not mean that she does not like wikitree (she even mentions the reporting). With the GEDCOM export it is perfectly possible to work in wikitree and to view the export on a standalone pc ;)
Sorry, truly, meant to be funny. Must be tired. Thanks for understanding.  Sincerely Mike

Hi Alisa,

I use Reunion9. I've found it quite acceptable, well intgegrated with the Mac and has most (but not qute all) of the cabibilities of Legacy 7 for Windows.  It's a bit expensive, but compared to an emulator to run Legacy 7 on the Mac, a bargain.

I'd like to know why you want this info when I've been told that WikiTree is the genealogy record to use. Why use another program? I need to know this for myself! Thanks. Rob
