          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
          GEDCOM.

          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.
