Roots to Go

Roots to Go

If you’re using Personal Ancestral File to organize your ancestors, the new version will allow you to take them with you on a handheld computer. PAF 5.1 has an unheralded built-in feature that lets you export the families and individuals you’ve plugged into your PC and view them on your personal digital assistant. This free genealogy software update has one catch: It works only on Palm-operating handhelds, not Pocket PC gizmos. To download, go to <www.familysearch.org>, click on “Order/Download Products,” then “Software Downloads — Free.”

To learn about other genealogy programs for handheld computers, see “Palm Trees” at <www.familytreemagazine.com/articles/decoo/palm.html>

From the August 2001 issue of Family Tree Magazine
