In Reply to: CHANGING MAC PAF FILES TO DOS by Betty Close of 4836

If you create a GEDCOM on your mac your PC will be able to read it. THere are a few things to watch out for though, first, make sure you export the gedcom to be used on "another computer", and second, be sure to save it from your mac to PC formatted disk (or DOS formatted). You can then import that gedcom into a new file on your new computer. Hope this helps.
