Its no secret that the number of people swapping from PC to Mac is on the rise, and a number of those people are also into genealogy. iFamily for Mac is one of the growing number of programs that are available for genealogy Mac users.
iFamily for Mac is not a new program. In fact it is simply a renamed one, having periously been known as iFamily for Tiger and iFamily for Leopard. Obviously with the release of new operating systems, it made sense to change to name to a much better, and much more appropriate name, considering it now works with OSX systems beyond Leopard.
A portion of the description we have for iFamily for Mac says the following …
iFamily for Mac is a genealogy program 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 you can see at a glance whether an individual has more than 2 parents or more than 1 spouse.

If you feel that you’d like to have a go at it youself, there is a free version that you can down download and try. The demo version of iFamily for Leopard lasts for 10 days and the only function that is unavailable is the export to Gedcom. The free version even lets you import a Gedcom file containing more than 100,000 people! Just head to www.ifamilyformac.com to get started.

Can anyone tell me if the iFamily genealogy software producers are still in business??
I recently upgraded my Mac to MacOS High Sierra and iFamily has stopped working – seems to happen with each increment of the Mac OS.
I went hunting for an update with Google, however, their website http://www.ifamily-for-mac now shows a webpage error for any search and an error page on related to Parallels software.
Without an update iFamily has become useless to me.
Updates for iFamily are still available. I believe you encountered our website during some unscheduled downtime, we are in the process of migrating to a more stable environment. There may still be a couple of days yet until our email servers are rehabilitated correctly.
I have directly emailed you a link to download the latest version.

Thanks for your inquiry. I suggest getting in touch with iFamily themselves in relation to this, as it may depend on what version of the program you have. But they would be able to verify that for you. You can contact them using the form online here:
