like Macintosh computers.
I also like genealogy.
I'm accustomed to PAF. I've looked at a number of other genealogy programs for Macintosh. But somehow they just don't feel right to me. Moreover I have some relatives who are still on Windows who use PAF.
So, for the time being, for maximum compatibility, I am pursuing using PAF on my Mac.
To that end, that is, to make PAF as easy as possible to install on a Mac, I've learned a little about Wine and WineSkin and packaged PAF to install easily on a Mac.
The package I've posted for download is known to work on OS X.5 and OS X.6. Not tested on later versions. (Please let me (firstname.lastname@example.org) know about other versions.)
For the long term I am working on another project that I call 'Leaves' - a browser based project that can be installed locally (like PAF or any of the other desktop genealogy programs) or installed on a server on the Internet for collaboration or for use on devices that don't support a local database.
If you want to download my "PAF on Mac" bundle as an App you can do so here.
If you want to encourage this project you can send a $2.00 donation to me by mail or e-mail (paypal).
Let me know how it goes for you. lorin.lund (at) gmail.com
