Ancestral Quest can now let a user of PAF 5 or AQ upload ordinance
information to the family tree of New FamilySearch.
For example, many records on nFS show the recent proxy ordinances, but
are missing the original baptism, confirmation, initiatory and endowment
information from when the individual did those ordinances as a living
person. You can now upload the original ordinance dates and temple codes
from your PAF (or AQ) file to nFS.
Since AQ does not have the ability to alert you to update to new
versions, we wanted to alert the FHCs that they can download the new
build from LANDesk. You might check, and if your version is earlier than
12.1.16, you should get this latest build from LANDesk to provide this
capability to your patrons.
We have also added a couple of shorter tutorials on using the features
to sync PAF data with nFS on our tutorials page, at
www.ancquest.com/Ver12-1Tutorials.htm, including a technique that users
should know about to upload their data to nFS without the duplication of
Remember, AQ is always free on Family History Center computers, and can
be downloaded from LANDesk. Anybody else can download the free 60 day
trial from www.ancquest.com.
