MacPAF is the answer for those members of the LDS church who prefer to use a Macintosh computer. I just found out about this MacPAF project from Dick Eastman's Genealogy Newsletter . I had no idea the Church was making an updated version of PAF for Macintosh users...but that's because the Church isn't updating it. A senior in Computer Science at BYU, Logan Allred, has been working on an updated version for almost 2 years now.
The last update for the Macintosh version of PAF was in 1996. The Church then discontinued the program. Right now Logan is still trying to work out all the kinks in his program, but you can download what he has so far and test it out.
I applaud Logan Allred for his effort. My husband is currently a senior in the Computer Science program at BYU too, and he definitely doesn't have time to undertake a project this big. And based on Logan's websites, I believe he also has 3 children to keep him busy. Thank you for your effort, Logan.
