Old Family Portrait

Incline Software, LC

Incline Software, LC was founded in 1994 with a mission to create the best family tree software available. It currently produces two premier tools: Ancestral Quest, one of the first Windows genealogy programs available, and Ancestral Quest Basics, a free version of Ancestral Quest containing all the essential features of the full version, but missing many of the bells and whistles.

Over the years, Incline Software™ has aligned itself with various other companies in an effort to market Ancestral Quest. From the fall of 1995 through the fall of 1997, Ancestral Quest was also sold by Infobases, Inc. (and later by an affiliate of Infobases, Ancestry, Inc.) From the fall of 1998 to the fall of 2000, Incline Software partnered itself with The Hope Foundation.

In 1999, with some strategic help from The Hope Foundation, Incline Software helped The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints develop its Windows version of Personal Ancestral File® (PAF).

Ancestral Quest (including programs derived from Ancestral Quest) has become one of the most widely used genealogy software program in the world.
