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.

What works

  • Viewing in family view and pedigree view.
  • Viewed the 'edit individual', 'edit notes', and 'view all sources' dialogs.
  • Navigate in family view and pedigree view.
  • Navigate in built-in help panels.

What does not

In pedigree view, right-click appears to flash a menu very briefly, but I couldn't use it.

Additional Comments

While the brief menu flash in pedigree view could count as a flaw, I consider it small enough of a flaw that the rating rounds to platinum.

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.)
