If so keep reading ...

Reunion is a genealogy software program for the Macintosh, that has been around since 1988, so that in itself tells you that it's a good program. However as a user of the program, I'm sure you already know that.

You'd also be aware that Reunion lets you document, store, and display information about your family, allowing you plenty of space for notes, adding in your sources, and lets you add in photos, audio and videos to your program, as well as being able to present your family graphically using reports and large wall charts.

WHEN WILL I GET MY DOWNLOAD VERSION? - Please allow up to two working days for us to process your order, and send you an email with your licence details.

TRY IT OUT - Reunion is a program that allows you to try it out before buying - so if you want to check it out, you can download the demo from here (221MB). The demo is just that, but it is enough to see how it works. The limitations of the demo are that only 50 people can be entered in a family file, the Import/Export is disabled, charts and slideshows can't be saved, and printed output will be watermarked. But that still gives you plenty of things you can do to see if Reunion is the program for you.

    Among all the geneaology software I saw since I started in 1990, Reunion is for me still the very best.
