Family history software is upgraded and corrected

The Family History Department has announced release 2.31 of Personal Ancestral File for MS-DOS computers. This upgrade corrects defects discovered in release 2.3.

Personal Ancestral File is a software program for compiling and organizing genealogical information with personal computers.A complimentary upgrade package is being mailed to all users who purchased release 2.3. They should allow three weeks for delivery. Purchasers of earlier versions may contact Family History Software Support (801-240-2584) to inquire about upgrade packets available to them.

Complete Personal Ancestral File Release 2.31 packages are now available for $35 at the Salt Lake Distribution Center (1999 W. 1700 South, Salt Lake City, Utah 84104, toll-free number for U.S. and Canada: 1-800-537-5950).

Because not all members have access to a home computer, stake presidents in English-speaking areas have been instructed to ensure that ward and stake computers are equipped with Personal Ancestral File. Members can then use these to fulfill their responsibility to identify their ancestors and provide temple ordinances for them. Each stake will receive the upgrade version of the Personal Ancestral File.

Personal Ancestral File requires 640K of memory to upgrade it optimally. Like release 2.3, release 2.31 requires a hard disk.

Software questions about Personal Ancestral File 2.31 may be directed to Family History Software Support, (801) 240-2584.
