  24. 24. Personal Ancestry Writer II Quote for the PAW2U web site: “PAWriter is not meant to have the bells and whistles that are in the current crop of genealogical programs. The emphasis is on maintaining a genealogical database from which the user can write books and/or post web pages about a family.”
