Cliff, if I was a PAF Program Developer, I certainly would look at fixing this. However, I am only a regular user of PAF, who trys to assist users with solutions to their problems. There is however, a temporary fix to this problem, which may not suit everyone. By adding the year to the surname (in the name field) it will sort correctly. But it is recommended that you don't use this method if you are eventually going to submit your files or send them to other researchers by GEDCOM. Perhaps in the next upgrade of PAF, whenever that happens, the developers will have addressed this problem (I am sure they read this Forum, and all the other Groups and Lists and take good suggestions "onboard").
