Synchronizing Information

Last week we reviewed the steps to add missing individuals into the new FamilySearch. Another way to add individuals is to use one of the family history computer programs that have been certified to synchronize information with FamilySearch. You can use these programs to:
  • Add information from your database (PAF) to the new FamilySearch Web site.
  • Add information from the new FamilySearch Web site to your database
  • Correct or delete information
  • Mark information as incorrect
  • Reserve names for ordinance work

Two certified PAF add-ins are Ancestral Quest and Family Insight. These programs allow users to access, print, update and sync with online information in They are intended for use with PAF 5 to read and write PAF files and Gedcom files in conjunction with the online family tree at new. For a complete list of third party computer programs that synchronize information, see:
