I recommend the seller. I also think the PAF genealogy program is the best, it outstrips Roots Magic, I would suggest all of you get a PAF disk if you can now find one, especially if in the past you downloaded from the internet. I am giving each one of my children a PAF 5.2 disk as it is the best at managing your research and records at home.

Ancestral Quest is a genealogy software application for Microsoft Windows developed by Incline Software, LC. It features data entry with sourcing capabilities and scrapbook extensions; a print engine for standard or custom charts and reports; a web page creator; a collaboration engine; and an extension tool for other genealogy databases.[citation needed]

Ancestral Quest was the first desktop genealogy software program to be certified to access, update, and synchronize with newer versions of FamilySearch.[4]


Developed in English, Ancestral Quest allows for translation to other languages using language modules. These user-created files allow Ancestral Quest screens and reports to be translated or customized. A user can create his or her own language module, or leverage the module of someone else. The Danish, French, German, Norwegian, and Spanish language modules are completely translated, and the Chinese, Finnish, and Swedish language modules currently have all basic screens and reports translated.[2]
