Personal Ancestral File (PAF) is discontinued
FamilySearch have announced in the last week that Personal Ancestral File (PAF) is to be discontinued.
From July 15 2013, PAF will be retired and will no longer be available for download or support.
PAF was originally released in the spring of 1984 and has been a popular genealogy database application ever since, with over 3.2 million copies distributed. The current version of PAF is based largely on code provided by Incline Software (Ancestral Quest). While it has remained available to download, PAF has not been updated since 2002.
