In April 1984, I became a full-time musician.

For a couple years, I was a busy yet starving artist.

Everything changed when music and computers began to mesh.

In the summer of 1988 I wrote a simple genealogy app as a gift for my mother-in-law and as a project to learn coding on the Apple Macintosh.

The app eventually became Reunion. With the help of a brilliant engineer I hired in 1992, the app blossomed over the years, selling all around the globe. For 10 years Reunion was featured on the shelves of every Apple Store in the world and has, for all these years, been the highest-rated family-tree app for the Mac.


Several years ago, the seeds of Reunion sprouted ReunionTouch, a mobile app for Apple’s iPhone and iPad.

If you have a family and you use a Mac, Leister Productions Inc. has a great tool for your personal genealogy.
