Who Do You Think You Are Who Do You Think You Are Magazine (behind the TV series) is running a huge sale on back issues of the magazine through the iPad/iPhone/iPod touch Newsstand app for $0.99:

Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine – iTunes Store

Single issues normally sell for £4.99 / €5.49 / $6.99, with normal subscriptions costing £3.99 / €4.99 / $5.99 per month, or with a 1 year subscription, £44.99 / €49.99 / $64.99.

I believe the back issues stretch all the way back to April of 2012, at least going by what I see in Newsstand.

MacFamilyTree 7.0.7 Available, 50% Sale Ends the 11th

Mac FamilyTree 7 for OS X Reminder: The upgrade pricing of $29.99 applies through tomorrow, August 11, 2013, and I’m not sure when it ends exactly on the 11th.

The demo is available through the Synium Software website or you can purchase it here: MacFamilyTree 7 (Mac App Store)). You can only purchase the full version through the Mac App Store.

MacGenealogy.org Note: I know there was a little controversy over it only being available through the Mac App Store, however those of you using it with iCloud Saves have probably seen how well it works as far as using it on multiple devices – I have used it this past week between an iPad, iPhone, and two Macs, and it’s worked well. Availability through the App Store is the price you pay for using iCloud to keep your data synced between all your Macs and mobile devices.

ohmiGeneLite 5.37.3

ohmiGeneLite 5.37.3 is now available, it’s a Mac OS X genealogy application requiring an OS X 10.5 or later.

5.37.3 adds a requested feature – the ability to list people starting from an initial person to a common ancestor, and then to a second person. For instance, if you were curious about shared relatives with a distant cousin, you could select yourself, and that cousin, and it would display your ancestors up to a common ancestor, and then it display the descendants of that common ancestor down to your distant cousin.

The full version is available for $40 through ohmi.celeonet.fr, but you can download ohmiGEneLite through this page. It’s also available for Windows and for PowerPC Macs through that page. It’s one of the few genealogy applications still available for PowerPC macs.

In select countries, you can also download an iPad version through the iTunes App Store
