Will, my problem was that PAF did not have a Mac version of their application that would work on the latest system.I have not checked in some time so don't know if they do now or not. However, they did have one that works with Windows. Since you say you don't have a computer I don't seehow you can retrieve those files until you have one.....unless they are saved to a disk already -or a separate drive. I stillhave files I can't open because they are not in gedcom format. Wish I could help more.
