Genealogy - Michael Spencer

 Genealogical research produces a wealth of data which can often be difficult to assimilate and understand properly as family links become ever more intricate. The bulk of my own research work over many years has been achieved using the facilities of Findmypast and Ancestry. In recent years I have become a fan of the MacFamilyTree 8 software. Not only is it capable of three dimensional displays for selected families but it also syncs the data with the free LDS site run by the Mormon Church in Salt Lake City. And, to further help the spread of this data to interested family members, MacFamilyTree data is 'synched' to its own Cloud Tree supported by the Apple organisation. Although either an iMac or an iPad/iPhone is required to view this data, the best bit is that the genealogical research immediately becomes available to invited subscribers who are then able to correct (or add to) information currently available (providing they are running at least the Sierra operating system on the iMac or IOS 10 on their mobile equipment). Given that the mobile version of MacFamilyTree8 costs only £8, this has to be a pretty good deal. MacFamilyTree 8 allows the data to be broadcast in website form on its own computers.
