ohmiGene 0.91.7

ohmiGene 0.91.7 has been made available. ohmiGene is “software for the creation and the management of genealogical data … which works on MacOS X and Windows, even Linux. A database created on Mac works on PC (Windows or Linux), and vice versa. The structure of the database was defined to be in maximal agreement with the GEDCOM format: if any context concerning the submission of a file to the church LDS is absent, almost totality of the other contexts are correctly handled (import, manipulation and export…) : OhmiGene is a software which respects a GEDCOM file at import (and export).”

Genealogy Pro 2.0 Pre-Release 5

Genealogy Pro 2.0 Pre-Release 5. That’s right, a 10th Mac genealogy application that is being actively developed (and since the Intel transition was first announced, I believe all 10 have seen or will shortly see new releases, and while they may not be Universal Binaries, they still should run just fine under Rosetta).

This pre-release should be the final pre-release version. It requires Mac OS X 10.2.8, and sells for $20 (with a 30-day free trial).
