Re: Genealogy software for Mac

Most importantly:
Make sure the software you decide on can run in your version of MacOS. The latest MacOS (10.15 Catalina) will not run 32 bit programs.
Check each website for compatibility.
RootsMagic 7 is the current version available. It will not run in Catalina. 
RootsMagic 8 will, but has not been released yet. There's a post on the RootsMagic Blog about this. http://blog.rootsmagic.com/?p=3297

I've been using Reunion for many years. A solid program. Updates are not free, which, over time, can add up to a lot of money.
Here's a list of programs available: https://www.familysearch.org/wiki/en/Mac_Genealogy_Software

Most programs have a demo you can download and try. Try one, add 10 people, 10 sources, etc. 
Each program should let you export the data as a GEDCOM file, which you can import into the next program you try.
