My sister-in-law uses PAF to do genealogy. However I am on a Mac and use Family Tree Maker. She has tried to send me a GEDCOM file that I can import into FTM, but everything she's sent has been unusable. She's not a computer expert, and she lives several hundred miles away, so I'm not sure what she's doing wrong or what to tell her to do to export the file correctly.

I have a few questions:

1) Does PAF have the ability to export to GEDCOM 5.5?
2) Are there step-by-step instructions online somewhere explaining how to export to GEDCOM 5.5?
3) If the answers to 1 and 2 are no, is there a VERY simple utility available to convert PAF to GEDCOM 5.5 (with instructions) online that I could direct her to?

Thanks in advance for any assistance!
