Old Family Portrait

Incline Software Products

Since 1994, Incline Software has developed wonderful tools to aid you in your efforts to record and share your Genealogy/Family History. In 1999, we made available to the LDS church the tools we had at that time, from which they produced the Windows versions of Personal Ancestral File (PAF 4 and PAF 5).

Incline Software has continued to improve and enhance its programs in an effort to keep it current with developing family history research tools.

Use Ancestral Quest if:

  • You are looking for simply the best family tree software you can own, or
  • You use PAF 5 and want to enhance PAF's capabilities with the extra features of Ancestral Quest. This gives you the option of converting your file to an AQ file, which will then allow you to use all of AQ's extra features that cannot be used with a PAF family file.
