I sure hope someone can help because I am sure having problems. I use PAF and have easily imported files from other family members. Recently a cousin suggested I download a free version of FTM online in order to more easily accept her imported files. I could get her files, but didn't get many of her notes and had quite a few errors. So I did download the free FTM, but as it turned out, the free online downloadable FTM (for importing and reading others files) was very outdated and could not read her FTW files anyway because hers is the most current version. Then my system wanted to open ALL of my imported files through FTM and not my PAF, even when the GEDCOM was designated to be opened in PAF. I went in and deleted everything I can find on my system that has FTW or FTM on it, but still I get errors now whenever I try to import a file into PAF and it won't let me open them. This is a mess and I don't know what to do. If anyone can help, I would sooo appreciate it.
Thanks,
Michelle
