COMMENT: I'm quoted there in the press release, as I recently wrote a review of the software for the forthcoming 2016 bookazine edition of Discover Your Ancestors, which should be out soon.

The TreeView programme has been available for a while as an online tool via, but with the new software edition it allows you to do the one thing that only Family Tree Maker has so far achieved, and that is to permit syncing between a hosted PC/Mac programme, tablet edition and online version of a tree with one click of a button. This is a feature that I wish many other software packages would adopt also, so major kudos to TheGenealogist team for achieving this.

  1. Very disappointed in TreeView,seems totally incapable of copying a file from PC to Mac, a total waste of money.
