Re: Convert MAC paf files to gedcom

Surnames: PAF to GEDCOM
Hello! I purchased a Mac computer after years with a PC. I had FTM2008 installed on my PC before it died. Fortunately, I saved my family tree files onto an external memory, but now that I have the Mac, I am unable to use the files because they were saved as paf files. I just purchased FTM for Mac v2, and see that it will not import anything but a gedcom file. Also, I had terrible issues with the program, as it froze up my computer and even caused problems with the internet! I have uninstalled it and am very disappointed. I want to find a program, perhaps Reunion, but I think I still need gedcom files. Would you be willing to try converting one of my several paf files to gedcom, then if it works, might I ask you to do the others? I have about 6 different files, as I have done my own, my husband, and several friends' family trees!
Thank you for any help you might be willing to offer! I'd hate to lose/not be able to use all the data I've accumulated over 15 years of research.
