Genealogy Programs for Family Buffs
by Jackie Smith



Ancestral Quest is an exciting Windows program that makes it possible for anyone to do genealogy! It is easy-to-learn and fun to use.

Ancestral Quest is the only Genealogy Software program written for Windows to be built on the PAF database. The PAF (Personal Ancestral File®) genealogy program is an industry standard for DOS. Databases can be opened, saved and edited equally by Ancestral Quest or PAF. Add-on programs and utilities designed for the PAF database can be directly used by the data from AQ. Ancestral Quest does not, however, require the PAF program.

Family Gathering for Mac and Windows by Palladium Interactive brings your family tree to life through: rapid data entry from one easy screen, making family journals, creating multimedia shows, online access for members only, creating your family web page, and creating and printing all of the reports you need. Expert technical support is included. This is an updated and enhanced version of an earlier (1995) COMMSOFT, Inc. program named Visual ROOTS.

Family Tree Maker Deluxe CD-ROM, 3.0 for Mac and Windows by Broderbund is easy to use yet comprehensive. Included in the program is it's Family Finder Index which lists more than 115 million people whose names appear in centuries of historical records. When you look up an ancestor's name, the Family Finder Index tells you which CD contains information about that person. Imports Kodak Photo CD, BMP, TIF, and OLE objects. Holds freeform stories in 15 "notes" pages per person. Includes a complete illustrated step-by-step user's manual and a Computerized Genealogy "How-to" Guide. Memorizes repeated facts and fills them in as you type. It is compatible with GEDCOM and PAF formats. Uses Family Finder Index which can also be used to search Family Archives CD's.

Personal Ancestral File 2.31 for Mac and PC is the standard on which Family History is based. It is a software package you can use to record your genealogical information, organize your information into family groups and pedigrees, identify areas where additional research is needed, and keep track of information sources and the information they provided.

The package consists of seven useful programs: Family Records, Research Data Filer, Genealogical Information Exchange, Configuration, Reunion, for Windows and Macintosh 4.0 by Leister Productions creates large graphic tree charts including descendant charts up to 99 generations, and pedigree charts up to 35 generations. Change chart orientation automatically, top-to-bottom, and left-to-right. Zoom out to get the big picture of the entire chart. Ideal for making wall charts. Creates forms and prints graphic family group sheets, questionnaires, cascading pedigrees. Provides book-style narrative Ahnentafel, Register and Family History reports, also generates indexes. Opens all reports directly to your word processor. Displays unlimited color and gray scale images such as photographs, certificates, wills, maps, etc. Magnifies images on screen. Lets you paste pictures into charts and reports to make them come alive.
