FAMILY HISTORY SOFTWARE

Opening Prayer

Review last week’s homework assignment

FAMILY TREE vs. A SOFTWARE PROGRAM (PAF)
Step 2d)  Enter Your Family Info Into A Computer
Explain the difference between Family Tree and Personal Ancestral File
xxxxx Family Tree is used for temple work & collaboration
xxxxxxx – you cannot print nice pedigree charts, narratives and notes
xxxxxxx – you cannot import pictures, documents, etc.
xxxxxxx – you cannot export data
xxxxx PAF lets you do these things

PERSONAL ANCESTRAL FILE (PAF)
Step 2d)  Enter Your Family Info Into A Computer
Show how easy PAF works…
Open Personal Ancestral File (PAF) from desktop

HelpCenter—Software Programs
There are several nice family history software programs.  Just choose one that syncs with Family Tree

Note: many members may not be interested in using anything more than Family Tree…which is fine.
