Re: PAF and GEDCOM and SQL Server database

Let me just add that as has been noted here in the past, PAF is derived from an older version of Ancestral Quest. Ancestral Quest is still available and being updated and the latest version no longer requires that you convert your PAF database file to the Ancestral Quest format; it will operate directly on your PAF file.

As such, you can still use PAF Companion to generate reports, as well as use the report functions built into both PAF and Ancestral Quest.

When I tried Ancestral Quest Charting Companion a few years ago (from the same folks that make PAF Companion) Charting Companion did not support the Unicode character-set used in the native Ancestral Quest database, and therefore did print umlaut vowels correctly. You'd have to check with Progeny to see if that problem has been fixed. But as long as you leave your database in PAF format, things work correctly in PAF Companion.

You'll need to look at the Ancestral Quest web site to see if it offers the additional data entry fields that you're looking for, as well as other data export formats.
