Gen Detective by Rumblesoft, Inc. Rumblesoft, Inc.

Mac OS X
(Updated 31 Oct 2017)

GenDetective® was designed to run on a Windows® computer. However, commercial programs exist that enable Mac OS X computers to run Windows programs. GenDetective® will run on a Mac using any one of these Mac OS X programs:

Apple BootCamp Parallels Desktop for Mac
VirtualBox VMWare Fusion

GenDetective® does not currently run using either Wine or Crossover.


GEDCOM files from native Mac genealogy programs that GenDetective® supports are:

Family Tree Maker for Mac iFamily
MacFamilyTree Reunion

If you are using a different Mac genealogy software program that you would like us to support, please email us at: Please support my Mac program.

In addition to supporting the above Mac genealogy programs, GenDetective supports the majority of Windows® genealogy software products.

If using a Windows® hosted environment on the Mac is not an option for you, a solution that enables our Windows based program to run on your Mac OS X machine may be coming shortly. The changes we have made architecturally have us hoping that we will be able to get GenDetective to run on a Mac with minimal help. Please check back with this page periodically for any updates.
