Migraton to apple-macintosh
Robert Griffiths
- Close
Will be shortly migrating to an Apple  Imac from a Microsoft Windows PC environment.

Can I continue to use the Family Tree Builder to keep my family tree site going?

If not,  what are the options, as I am not able to edit the tree from the website?

thanks

Robert

Hi ~ Are you still looking for a Mac version?  I've been on MyHeritage for a year and I love it!   I was on Windows, but now I need to use a Mac computer.   At the bottom of your home page in the green area go to Support, then Help.  I entered Apple in the question box and it replies to ask MyHeritage to "flip a switch" so you can do your updates directly on the internet site.   At the bottom it says "Ask an agent by email" - click on it and ask them to "flip the switch" for Mac.  You'll get an email confirming your work order, then another when it's done.

To maintain a person profile, find that person in your tree.  Click on the person you want to update.   The left column shows the current Profile information.  The blue button View profile allows you to add information about Education, Work, Favorites, Biography, Web Content, and share your memories of this person.  You can also add photos here.  Edit Details gives you a small window for name and birth info.  The Options drop box lets you Add relatives, View this person's branch, Connect to existing person, Remove connection, Delete this Person.   In the left column you can add photos.   The main area for updates will be Facts.   You can click Add to add the basic information about a fact.   Click on an existing fact to add or change information.   

Get your "switch flipped" and enjoy!

Hi Robert,

As written in the other replies, we don't have a MAC version of FTB yet.

I will forward all you requests to our Development Team.

OS X is the fastest growing operating system (by market-share %). It is quite honestly ridiculous that a site such as myHeritage does not have a solution of any kind for Mac users (such as myself).

 

Perhaps they could release at least a limited version of the software to judge how many people would use this version of the program, which I for one would.

 

To other Mac users out there, at the moment your only options are to load your FTB family tree into a virtual Windows installation or use bootcamp to dual-boot your mac, neither is ideal!

Hi Adam, I totally agree with your opinion! Don't know if could be a good idea write few rows to My Heritage about the missing software for Macintosh. If others My Heritage's users could follow our request I think we could receive a faster solution.

I am attempting to run the Family Tree Builder on my Mac through VMware Fusion, but I have some problems. 

My problem is that I had to do a fresh install of windows under Fusion and then download my family tree from the site - and I can't find a way to import the .ZED file into the new installation.  

A native Mac OS X version would be great though! Is this being planned?

Hi, 

Thank you again for the requests for a MAC version of Family Tree Builder.

We do not currently have plans for a MAC version. 

We apologize for the inconvenience, and hope that you nonetheless continue using our web version at www.myheritage.com

Best Regards,

With regards to Esthers comment about no plans for MAC well it is just a little daft and I think that there shoul be a law.  I have Windows so not a problem for me but I am not biased by windows / mac or linux but I know people who can only use Mac/Linux or Windows.  Get with the program guys.

Perhaps it is time to implement a Mac version including iphone/ipod app.  There is a huge growing market out there and you are missing out.  It will really differentiate FTB from all other PC programs.

 The idea of a fully functional iphone app that you take with you everywhere rather than a laptop or netbook is the way of the future.

 There are 2 mac versions now but they don't have your capabilities.

Marketing, let's go!

I have a mac and have been using the myheritage.com online version

 Can you tell me what I am missing? What features does the downloadable Windows version have which the online version does not?

Two specific issues:

1) I am thinking of upgrading to the premium version for the all-in-one chart. Does this exist on the online version?

2) Currently I am not a site manager. If I become one, will I be able to upload and export a GEDCOM file in the online version?

 Thanks

Hi Charlie, 

Thank you for writing to us.

The all-in-one  chart is available online. 

As the site manager of a family site, you can import and export Gedcom files from the site. 

Best Regards,

Okay My Heritage, Ancestry just announced a Mac version of their most popular program, Family Tree Maker with an iphone/ipod app.

 Don't wait any longer!  You are no behind the market.

 The issue is with the online versus the pc or iphone/ipod is that you have to be online to work on your database.

I am mac user too.

once mac you never go back. (since 10y now)

dont need a native software though just all features in online/web version. Especially the link smart matches feature. Can see the matches but can only contact them for now. Why not create the features in online version first and then migrate to offline version?

a 99c iphone/ipad version would fill your pockets with nice $$ though.

Hi Tobias,

thank you for writing to us. 

The merge smart matches feature is a feature that is only available in Family Tree Builder and is not available in the online site. We apologize for the inconvenience. 

We are looking into adding an iphone app in the future.

Hi,

Unfortunately we dont have an estimated time for launching products for Macintosh.

I have already seen a preview for the iPhone application, but cant really tell when is coming out.

Please, keep posted via the emails we send out.

Thanks!

Hello, I would be also interested in either a Mac version of the family tree builder or the possibility to merge smart matches online. I just learned that neither is possible at the moment. Stupid me. Because merging smart matches was the reason why I upgraded to Premium member. Since I just upgraded yesterday, I will withdraw the membership again because as a Mac User I do not have any incentive for using a paid version.

Hi Constance,

You are right on both accounts,

but there are some good news.

 

Even though the development of a MAC version might take a while,

we are planning to release a new version of the online Smart Matches in about 2 months,

which will include the Merging option.
