Windows software on a Macintosh

DearREADERS,
Ol' Myrt here has begun working with a newbie to genealogy, who purchased a brand new Macintosh desktop computer, so that she can use her familiar Mac programs, and then add the component of using Windows versions of genealogy software programs. I spent time earlier this week on the phone with Bruce Buzbee to find out how his RootsMagic works on Mac computers.
We both agreed, we would LOVE to hear from Dick Eastman about his MacBook

Well, today's posting from Dick details how he uses:
-- Parallel
-- Windows (Vista or XP)
-- Family Atlas (a Windows platform genealogy mapping program)

Mac computer owners will want to familiarize themselves with the possibility of having 2 spaces open on their computer screens:
-- one with a MAC program open
-- one with Windows program capabilities

This is particularly important if Mac owners are using Reunions by LeisterPro. It is my understanding that the LeisterPro developers are not attending the meetings with FamilySearch to ensure full compatibility with the "new" FamilySearch database/website that has yet to be released.

Happy family tree climbing!
Myrt :)
DearMYRTLE, your friend in genealogy
