CAN'T READ BACKUP DISC
Posted by: J(Carey)Pearce Date: January 16, 2001 at 14:55:52
  of 4837

My cousin has mailed me a 3 1/2" disc with our family entered on PAF3.0 I am still using PAF 4.04 When I tried to read it on MY COMPUTER all I got was gibberish. I have an empty PAF file in MY DOCUMENTS. I can't get it into that. This is not a GEDCOM . What am I doing wrong? She has used it!
AND BY THE WAY, I AM NOT COMPUTER SAVVY!
