In Response To: Re: Here are some free resources on the Internet (Dee)

Dee and anyone else starting out and wanting to find a good family tree program may want to try the free download at It is a very good program, easy to use, and has many capabilities for adding ancestors to the database. It even allows you to add actual copies of any documents you may want to attach to a file, it allows media attachments - photos, videos, etc.- and you can set the individual files to produce a family album or a slideshow on your computer. I've used the Personal Ancestral File (PAF) for years, and am very satisfied with it.

The download is available for free here:

I would suggest you download the Personal Ancestral File, which is the latest version. There is also a companion database that lets you do even more things with your program, if you wish, called Companion 5.2 Evaluation Version. If you click onto the name link for that database, you can see what it does. It's not necessary to use the Companion, however, and all that's really needed is the PAF5 download.
