My genealogy data has been in Personal Ancestry File (PAF) on my desktop computer for 20+ years. I recently also put it on Ancestry.com. For now, I am maintaining it in both places because PAF will print descendant lists. Unfortunately, PAF will not print to a file, so if want to share a descendant list, I need to print and scan, or use a screenshot. Maintaining the data in two places is getting tiresome, so I would like to stop using PAF.
How could I make a descendant list more directly from Ancestry.com? Preferably with free software. Ancestry will allow you to export a GEDCOM file that could be imported into other software. Not ideal, but this may be the best option.
I would want to specify how many generations, and what information to display for each person (full dates/year only, places, etc)
I am running Windows 10.
Example output from PAF.
