Jerry Faragalli I've been using the PAF program, as well as the resources at the LDS libraries, for many years.

Stephanie I love the PAF program, and I also like that program over any other's I have tried. Is there a place on the internet to still get the 5.2 version? Or would someone that still has it be willing to send me a copy of the .exe file?

Stacy I've used this program for years. When the church stopped supporting it I tried others, but they are so overly complicated needlessly that I always end up going back. It doesn't list Windows 7 as compatible, but it runs perfectly on Windows 7.

Chris I published two major multi-volume genealogies with PAF and is still using it after many years.

Kaz Thompson So easy to use and have used for many years. I have tried other programs, but they are more complicated & hard to follow. Love the paf5.2 & give it a 5 star!

Rory Does anyone know if it's possible to install PAF 4 on Windows 10? I have the original PADF setup file from 1999. Or download it (I know LDS don't existany more). Or v5. As a last resort, is there anyone whom I could send a PAF file to?

chekwriter Have been using 5.1 since it ever came out. No real problems, just my computers have been having problems, not enough memory on them.. It works for me for being a non LDS researcher.

Kay Because I have used it for years and it has been marvellous but something has gone wrong with my copy and I need it for my 30000 names I have recorded.

Guest Will PAF 5.2 accept Gedcom files createded in PAF 4 and PAF 5.1? If someone can answer this question, it will help me make up my mind about which program to get.

Guest When you downloaded this program, did it change your computer? It asks if it can make changes to my computer. I just bought my computer and don't want to have problems right off the start! I Loved PAF 5.1 and use it all the time. I wanted to download it to the new computer so I could continue using the program, but have reservations. What has your experience been with downloading the program?

Guest PAF 5.2 is one the best programs I have used. Better than Ancestry or FTM, and I am surprised that a newer version wasn't released from the IDS Church Family History center. AQ along with the What The Genealogist Wanted made a great program.
