John, I've only worked with Acrobat a little, but it does seem to be able to produce a PDF file from any standard office program, such as a major word processor. It may even be able to work directly from UFT, although I doubt that you would want to burn an UFT report directly onto a CD without cleaning it up a little. Maybe the UFT editor would allow you to do this cleanup, but I haven't used it much to find its limitations. I suggest moving your UFT reports to Word or WordPerfect, cleaning them up to get just what you want, and then produce a report using Acrobat as your "output device". Photos in particular don't always end up in the best layout directly from UFT. The resulting PDF file can then be copied to a CD using the CD writing software that came with your CD (or whatever you use to write to CDs). Allowing others to add to your data is another problem altogether. Obviously UFT reports alone won't give people the ability to update the underlying database, which presumably is still on your computer. You could add a GEDCOM of your database to the CD, but GEDCOMs are always imperfect when transferring between genealogy programs, and may have problems even being brought into the same type of database that created it. In general, I think updates to a genealogy database should be done manually, rather than trust someone else to have a GEDCOM or other file format that can be merged with your existing data without causing problems.
