Personal Ancestral File Downloads, PAF User Groups

Sadly the very EASY, very SAFE, very user-friendly, dependable, comfortable, time-saving family tree genealogy program known as PAF is no longer downloadable from FamilySearch (LDS/The Mormons). FamilySearch made an announcement stating that they would no longer offer PAF (Personal Ancestral File) downloads or support and instead they now recommend their search partners.  In 2013 they went into deeper partnership with Ancestry-com, which was bought by Permira Private Equity For 1.6 Billion Dollars, and after that PAF was removed from the FamilySearch website.  Classic PAF is proven to give you fast, easy results and makes efficient use of your time.

THANKFULLY these kind saints (on the list below) have kept PAF (Personal Ancestral File) Online.

Dear Readers, if you know of other places where PAF programs can be freely and safely downloaded send me the link in an email. THANK YOU
Please don't send me links to EBay, Amazon, Craig's List, etc, etc. sales pages.
Yes I know PAF is being sold on those sites I only want to list free download sites, PAF User Groups that might charge a dollar or 2 for a CD copy of the program and PAF user forums and message boards.
