Family Ties (Familienbande) Jan 28, Feb 2 Updates

New versions of Family Ties/Familienbande have been released – January 28, 2006, and February 2, 2006. It’s a free Mac OS X (and possibly MacOS 8.6/9 with Carbon) genealogy application from Stefan Mettenbrink. It’s currently only available in German, however it is useable by non-German speaking genealogists. We’ve provided a page with a list of translated features here.
