More info about "OUR FAMILY" Album:

A family record is more than of book of names, dates, and places. It is about the people who fill its pages—those whose life experiences create the story of a family, which can be passed down from generation to generation. Our Family History brings you a beautifully appointed space to capture the who, what, where, and when of your family and your ancestors—from birth of a great, great grandparent to the birth of the newest baby. This keepsake album, with ribbon closure, provides an opportunity to relay a firsthand account of your life in addition to the oral family history that is previously unrecorded; headings and prompts make it easy to record important thoughts and memories. You’ll also find sturdy, decorative photo frames, which are built into the album to feature heirloom photographs and pockets to store mementos from landmark events. A family tree is included to give a visual presentation of your ancestral background.

Free Genealogy Software - PAF 5








I currently use PAF 5 as one of my primary Ancestral Files. This software will allow you to build your family tree, create pedigrees, family group sheets, Modified Registries, Ancestry and Descendants list, Individual Summaries,  and so much more. The Family Search website offers this software for free. There are no gimmicks, or trial periods, just free.  Click here to Download PAF 5 >>   Above is my 5 generation Family Tree using Personal Ancestral File (PAF 5). Click image to enlarge.


About PAF 5:  Genealogical data can be imported into your favorite family history software using GEDCOM files. Another popular file format is PAF 4 or 5 format. Personal Ancestral File 5.2 is a Windows® based version of one of the most widely-used genealogical management programs for home computers. The software program can be downloaded free of charge via the Internet. PAF 5.2 does not provide genealogical data. Instead, its program helps users organize their family history records. It can produce, in automated or manual form, records for personal family histories or charts and logs to help users in their search for missing ancestors.

Update: (March 10, 2014) PAF 5 is no longer available for download.
