Bye, Bye PAF, Hello ?

Keene Public Library
Since the announcement that PAF is being retired, there is some confusion as to what to do! There are a number of personal genealogy databases out there! In my opinion, one size does not fit all. Whenever I am asked what is the best program, I give them the websites and tell them to check out the programs for themselves. What works best for my husband definitely doesn't work best for me. Get the picture? I think it all has to do with the way you think and the way the programs feel to you. So... to check out the three database programs and get a feel for them, click here (Ancestral Quest), here (Legacy Family Tree), and here (Roots Magic). As a side note, if you are a little older and have been using PAF forever, Incline Software (Ancestral Quest) wrote the code for the original PAF program and gave it to the church. You can use a PAF file OR an Ancestral Quest file with Ancestral Quest. It looks much like the PAF program, but with more bells and whistles! There are other personal database programs too, but these are the three that are newly certified to work with
