Personal Ancestral File (PAF)

This was the first Windows-based release. It used the 32-bit ANSI API.

There are some languages (for instance, Spanish) for which the localized version of PAF 4.x is still available but for which there is no localized version of PAF 5.x.

HowTo / Notes

AppDB page maintenance has been suspended.

Maintenance of this AppDB page has been suspended, because PAF has been unsupported since about July 15, 2013.  A comment was posted in August, 2013 asking whether anyone still uses this application, and there has been no response.

If anyone does use this application, please post a comment.  If anyone does use this application, I'll probably resume regular testing with new versions of Wine.  (If someone else wants to be a maintainer of this page, I won't be opposed.)
