.aft File Extension

Developer: Ancestry.com
File type: Ancestry.com Family Tree Database File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .aft. Files with the file extension .aft can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .aft files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .aft file?

Content stored in a file used by an associated application as reference data are known as data files, and some of these data files are used as the databases themselves of the corresponding programs. An example of these database files is a file appended with the .aft extension. Also called Ancestry.com Family Tree database files, the pieces of data stored in these AFT files are entered by users with the Ancestry.com Family Tree Maker software, and this application automatically creates an AFT file that corresponds with the output file saved by the user. The content of these AFT files includes the names of relatives and other pieces of information about each relative among other genealogic details. The data stored in a file with the .aft extension can also be updated via the Internet, specifically through the Ancestry.com website. The Ancestry.com Family Tree Maker software can be installed in a Microsoft Windows-based system, so users can implement access to the content of these .aft files and begin to create output projects associated to an .aft file, which will automatically be created by this application upon saving the project output file.

how to open a .aft file?

Launch a .aft file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .aft file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .aft files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .aft file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .aft file will open the correct application.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .aft files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .aft. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
