PAF to AQ: No GEDCOM Necessary
As many genealogists and family historians know, PAF has been a mainstay since June, 1999 and for some, still is, in spite of the fact that it hasn't been supported or improved in a very long time.
On July 15th, 2013, FamilySearch.org displayed the following announcement for all PAF users:
The history of PAF and AQ goes back to 1997 when PAF 3 was introduced with a different database structure. This prompted AQ 3.0 to have the ability to work with that new database structure. In 1999, PAF 4 and PAF 5 were created from the code provided to FamilySearch by Incline Software, in fact, PAF 4 was nearly identical to AQ 3.0 except for the different name and a few other minor variations. PAF 5 was last released in 2002, yet AQ has continued to improve and provide many new features that have made it a winner of multiple awards over the years.
Switching over to AQ is as simple as opening up your PAF database from within Ancestral Quest, there is no GEDCOM files to create and import, nothing will be lost, and you will feel like you are working in PAF with a long list of improved features!
Take advantage now of this easy switch over and the limited time offer for PAF users today!
