This program is so good that it may be reason all by itself to justify migrating from a PC to a Mac. It is so simple, so pleasing to look at, and so powerful that you will never want to use any other kind of genealogy software--and you will wonder why you didn't get this sooner.

I have been using Reunion for years, and I always buy the upgrades. If you have a previous version of Reunion, you will want to go to leisterpro.com and download the update. It is all you need, and it is less money.

If you are new to genealogy (or at least new to using a computer to store your genealogy research), save yourself some frustration and begin with this program. It is so simple that you can just start clicking around and figure out most of what you need to know. And if not, the help is quite good. Or, if you prefer, Leister is very good about supporting their product (as are the many, many users who contribute to their forums).

And the results of your work are very pleasing to the eye. The Leister folks really worked on their interface, and it shows.

After you have spent some time at this hobby (or project, if you are more serious about your genealogy), you will begin to appreciate the tools that Reunion includes--tools for documenting sources, tools for creating a wide variety of reports showing relationships and timelines, etc, tools for cleaning up your data (showing possible duplicate entries, for example, and helping you to merge them into one person).

Sure, you might be able to find a cheaper piece of software on sale for less money. But you have already spent several hundred dollars on getting a Mac instead of a PC--because it is simple, pleasing to look at, and powerful. Why would you want software that is anything else?

5.0 out of 5 stars people having trouble March 24, 2013
This reunion 10 is the best program out there.
I have over 12000 people in my tree and its only when your tree gets this big and complicated and you have fully learned what this program can do you realize hat none of the other programs are able to do what this one does. Over the last 10 years i have ported my data over to all the other programs available just to check if there is better out there, and not one of them is able to do what this program can do.

5.0 out of 5 stars First time user - great product! June 9, 2012
Verified Purchase
Have dappled in genealogy before, but this product induced me to enter people, pictures, stories etc. So now all those scraps of paper are organized into a beautiful format. The "source" files make it a breeze to document. The program has features for people at my level of genealogy and appears to have far deeper aspects for those who know much more. Only downside I see is no pdf manual.

4.0 out of 5 stars Genealogy on a Mac March 20, 2013
Verified Purchase
Installed. It works. Transferred 4500+ person genealogy to it. Now I have to acquaint myself with use vs. Family Tree Maker, the software I used for more than 10 years. That will take time. But as far as I can see Reunion is the best alternative for genealogist using a Mac. FTM destroyed their product.

5.0 out of 5 stars A dream For Mac users June 24, 2012
Verified Purchase
I received the program on Saturday. Started to input data today - Talk about a user friendly program. It's GREAT. No problems from the program so far - Just some mis-steps by me. I look forward to getting all my data entered and follow up with some research. If you struggle with other programs, you won't with this one. I will follow up with more info in a month or so. Don't wait - get this program - You'll love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Genealogy for Mac January 6, 2014
By Mari
Verified Purchase
As those of you who have tried different genealogy programs for Mac know, that can be tricky. I have used The Master Genealogist (pc ONLY) for years and have loved its thorough and extensive features. I really wanted something that I could use on my iMac now that I have made the switch from pc. GEDCOMs have their (extreme) limitations when importing files. That is a simple fact. Reunion 10 imported my GEDCOM as well as can be expected and now I am in the process of correcting and sorting before I can use the program fully. It divides data into "Events" and "Facts" and the GEDCOM has no such division. If you are converting from some other program, expect to put in some time and effort putting things right. The import photos from iPhoto is a nice feature. I think I am going to enjoy the simplicity and functionality of this program once I get beyond the initial phase. I will report more in the future.

2.0 out of 5 stars Reunion 10 not a great upgrade November 7, 2013
I've have been a Reunion for Mac user and total fan for many years and for family history on a mac it is absolutely excellent. Clear, intuitive and extremely stable. For a mac user it is what we expect from our experience. I thought I should upgrade, so tested the demo version - but why did I bother? The upgrade (version 10) is expensive and cluttered and changes the interface from a simple presentation to one that looks too busy. No significant improvements that are worth the money and version 9 looks better and is easier to use. Sorry Reunion, but on this occasion you have moved away from the centre of excellence you have held for years. I look forward to version 11 - but I'm skipping version 10. Please make sure that whatever change you do please allow users to keep the version 9 interface. It cannot be bettered.

5.0 out of 5 stars Reunion 10 October 31, 2013
Verified Purchase
I have used a few other Family History Software programs over the years. I needed something to work on a Mac computer. I use both Mac and PC based software programs. This, for me, is an excellent software program. There are many features which are quite intuitive and easy to learn. Adding documents, photos and even short videos has been quite easy to upload and to share with family. Like all new software it takes a little getting used to it - however once you have it formatted the manner in which you like to work it is easy to use. I like the ability to customized my reports, pictures, and individual information.

I didn't really care for this program and therefore don't use it much. But then again, I'm not very techno savvy.
