Import From PAF

This plugin provides options for adjusting GEDCOM data imported from a Personal Ancestral File (PAF) such as:

  • Any Individual Local Note text with PAF Fact Tags can be moved to matching Facts.
  • All _UID UDF and _AKA UDF may be moved to a valid destination, or simply deleted.
  • Many Date Phrases can be converted into valid GEDCOM Dates.

On completion, it produces a full Result Set of all the changed database values.
