Thanks for your suggestion but it would not help in this situation. My goal is to eliminate the need for my old computer which is fully operational and functioning perfectly.
I have PAF 2.31 and GenBook on the old computer and PAF 5.2 and PAF Companion on the new computer. I have been successful in moving my files from the old computer to the new computer using GEDCOM, so my data is now secure. I was afraid that my old computer was reaching it's maximum capability and would lose years of research.
Space is my real problem as I simply do not have room for a lot of old equipment. I really think it is a shame that no one has incorporated the capabilities of GenBook into a modern genealogy. Rex Clement wrote the perfect genealogy program over ten years ago and it has never been equaled since that time. I cannot make PAF Companion formats comparable to GenBook.
Fortunately, I have published most of my family histories in GenBook formats. I do have the option of upgrading both computer data files if need be but again need the space.
