Thanks for that link.
It pretty well confirms what I don't want to transfer the data over to the new mac computer or into a different genealogy software program using Gedcom as I will likely loose info. I need a program that will use the PAF data directly without having to convert it to Gedcom.
Problem is none of the 3 programs that LDS recommends were designed to use on a Mac. One of them can be used on a Mac but requires the install of a cross over program which I was hoping to avoid having to install on my new Mac as I have no other programs requiring it.
