RootsMagic and PAF are both genealogy software programs that allow you to record,
document, and publish your family history.
RootsMagic provides the features of PAF, plus many additional features not found
in PAF or other programs. For example:
Make Shareable CD's - burn CDs and DVDs of your work to give to others, complete
with customizable menus and a special shareable version of RootsMagic.
To-Do Lists - keep a to-do list for every person in your database .
Create Spectacular Wall Charts - create customizable wall charts, including
ancestor, descendant, and hourglass charts that you can customize and add your own
background photos, colors, and more .
Publish Complete Books - print books with multiple chapters, index, table
of contents, cover and title pages, photographs, and more .
Color Coding - color code people on your screens or reports, and even search
or select people based on their color code.
Over 100 Printouts - customize colorful reports and lists which can be printed
directly, saved to PDF, or sent to your word processor.
FamilySearch currently has no plans to update PAF to integrate with FamilySearch Family Tree.
As a FamilySearch Certified application, RootsMagic bridges the gap between your
personal family history data and the New FamilySearch internet site. RootsMagic
can seamlessly share your family tree with others through FamilySearch Family Tree as
well as retrieve the information that you don't have. It also makes cleaning up
and correcting information on FamilySearch a breeze!
RootsMagic is the first genealogy program certified to reserve temple ordinances
on FamilySearch, and also to print the Family Ordinance Request (FOR) form to
take to the temple.
While PAF itself is free, you would have to spend over $60 on add-on utilities
and still not get all the features that are already built into RootsMagic.
Of course, if you still like free, get our RootsMagic
Essentials, the first completely free desktop genealogy software certified
to work with new FamilySearch.
Very easy. RootsMagic can directly import your PAF data so youâ€™ll be
up and running in minutes. Watch
a video tutorial of it here.
Plus, RootsMagicâ€™s award-winning menus and screens make it easy to find just what
youâ€™re looking for.
RootsMagic is available at your favorite LDS bookseller including Deseret Book,
Seagull Book, and BYU Bookstore.
