30 Nov 2020 11:35 AM | Anonymous

For some time, Progeny Genealogy Software has offered an excellent program for Windows users that creates gorgeous genealogy charts. Now the company has introduced a very similar from for Macintosh users. If you are a Mac user and if you would like better to produces better chart printouts, you need to investigate Charting Companion for Macintosh!

Progeny Genealogy Software is offering introductory pricing for the Macintosh version. Even better, the company is also offering discounts on the Windows version at the same time!

Instead of my trying to describe all the features of both the Windows and Macintosh versions of Charting Companion, I will simply republish the company's advertisement.

NOTE: I am not compensated in any way by Progeny Software for publishing this article. I am simply a fan of the program and, as a Mac user, I especially appreciate the release of the new Macintosh version.
