  1. Otto Collier is my G-Uncle, would like to see if you have other info about Collier family. His sister Verla Collier was my Grandmother.

  2. Does MacFamilyTree really do LDS support, as noted above? Its website does not indicate that, nor does the partner page of FamilySearch.

    1. MacFamilyTree 7.2 is “Tree Share” certified but not “LDS Features” certified. Thus it will sync with LDS FamilyTree but only for non-LDS birth, marriage and death data. LDS ordinance data in FamilyTree cannot be viewed or synced. Synium (the creators of MacFamilyTree) informed me a few months ago that it is their intention to include LDS Features but it has not happened yet.

      However, LDS data can be added manually: there is support for LDS terminology and for adding LDS-specific fields.

      FamilyInsight is the only Mac software I am aware of that that syncs LDS data with FamilyTree, but it is not really a fully-functioning genealogical programme, and does not claim to be. I do not know of ANY Mac family history software that is certified for LDS Features. Several provide support for manual entry of LDS ordinances, but none view and sync LDS data in LDS FamilyTree. If this has changed recently, someone will no doubt correct me.
