    Will not recognize GED files for me made from PAF, AQ, or FTM. Error message says line must start with an integer level.

    This app is just what I have been looking for as it displays a full family tree with both ancestors and descendants and is very easy to navigate. The pinch and zoom is very effective and it also shows key dates and notes for an individual with just a tap.
