I use Windows myself, but I've heard that Reunion is the genealogy
program most used on Macs. I don't know whether it would meet your
needs, though. No one seems to write programs that handle pre-1600
data really well. (I'm using Rootsmagic, and it does have 'residence'
as a fact, although I had to create one for 'title'.)
