  1. From the File menu, select Import.

  2. Select the drive and folder where the file is located.

  3. Select the file.

  4. Click Import.

  5. Choose the import options that you want.

  6. To import the file, click OK.

  7. The program opens a text editor to display an import log. You can print this report.

  8. To close the box that tells you how many individuals were imported, click OK.
    Tip: To import the GEDCOM file into a new .paf file, you must first create a new .paf file and then import the GEDCOM file into it.

  9. The program asks if you want to view instructions on how to link the data you imported. Click Yes or No.
    Tip: If you click Yes, the help system opens to a topic that is titled "Working with imported information." Click here to see "Working with imported information."

Hope that helps.
