- Personal Ancestral File (PAF)
The original free Family Search PC program which still works very well
- Brother's Keeper version 6
This is an old version of this very good family tree program. After installing it under Windows 10, I had to make a new folder on the C:\ drive and called it BK6, and then under that a folder called data, and under c:\BK6\data a folder to keep your tree. When it stats up the first time, change to path to this new folder to keep the databases.
- Geno Pro version 2b13h
This is an old beta version of this very good family tree program with difference! The 'view' of the tree does take a bit of getting used to, but it is ok!
