  1. I recently pacshured Ancestry.com’s Family Tree Maker for the Mac and loaded it on my laptop in order to compare it to Reunion. I liked it, but not enough to drop Reunion in its favor and I certainly don’t want to maintain two genealogy programs. If you already use the Windows-based FTM and have recently pacshured a Mac, then you might want to consider using this Mac version; there would be a shorter learning curve.FTM for Mac is based on Family Tree Maker 2010, not the recently-released 2011 so you may not find the same updates and improvements. If you are a regular Ancestry.com user, the integration provided with the web site may be a plus; however, their full-featured browser is not used when you search within the FTM for Mac app so there are limitations. I liked the Merge feature, the Places feature (connects to Google Maps) and the layout of the People pane. I found the source/citation entry process cumbersome, but that is not my strong point in any software program. Good help/training is available within the app as well as on Ancestry.com’s web site.
