Synium Software releases MacFamilyTree 5.4 - Brand new Web Export

March 2, 2009 in Software (E)

[] Mainz, Germany - Synium Software is proud to announce the availability of MacFamilyTree 5.4, their popular genealogy application for the Mac. Version 5.4 brings a host of new and improved and new features and is the biggest and most important update within the fifth generation of MacFamilyTree.

With its completely redesigned Web Export, publishing one's family on the Internet is Just a few clicks away - making genealogy research available to friends and family worldwide. MacFamilyTree 5.4 offers an enhanced workflow, a completely new web page design, including additional attractive themes. Using the MacFamilyTree website, users can publish their family trees at no additonal cost.

The geolocations search is another heavily-improved feature of version 5.4: MacFamilyTree now comfortably retrieves names and coordinates for places, from tiny villages to huge metropoles - instantly, requiring just a few clicks. A database of more than 1.5 million entries includes information about country and state, as well as additional and historical place names. Places for which the exact coordinates have already been defined, will propagate this information to every subsequently added event in the same location.

With MacFamilyTree 5.4, users are able to quickly export all Reports as self-contained HTML documents to easily attach them to e-mails and for archiving purposes too. The popular Family Assistant received a major overhaul and is now much more accurate when it comes to displaying and aligning individuals across generations and family contexts. A new Startup Window grants direct access to the most recently-used family trees.
