Reunion. Without a doubt, the best genealogical database program for Macintosh. Version 7.0 is now available and it includes web-ready pages.

Generations. Leister Pro sold the PC version of Reunion to Sierra who has taken it and added their own ideas. This genealogy database program one of the best-loved programs on the market!

Master Genealogist. One of the best for Windows or DOS, though at the high end of the pricing.
