With the increasing popularity of the Mac, the Society of Genealogists is proposing to organise an event in London, England on the genealogy programs for the Mac and I am coordinating this.

We have several programs available:
iFamily
Gramps
MacFamilyTree
PAW2U
Reunion
and even Family Tree Maker (for Mac)
and there may be a few more (see <http://www.macgenealogy.org/mac-genealogy-software/>).

What I am thinking of is that we should first of all demonstrate as many of these as possible. This needs people to do the demonstrating. I can do Reunion and I already have a volunteer for iFamily but we are not familiar with the others. Can anyone else who uses any of these other programs please get in touch with me so that we can explore the possibilities further.

In addition to this, we should provide time for workshops on the different programs. The people attending would be able to ask questions about using their program and the Expert would endeavour to answer these, all in open session. We would need volunteers for the Expert roles, so again please get in touch with me.
