Download Ancestral Quest Basics for free!

This is the download link for Ancestral Quest 14. Until you purchase a key, it will run as Ancestral Quest Basics, in which the essential features of AQ are all active at no cost, but the more advanced “bells and whistles” are unavailable.

If you have a registration key for Ancestral Quest 12.x, you can use it in AQ 14 and have access to the feature set from AQ 12.x.

If you decide you want to fully activate the AQ 14 program’s features, you will need to purchase a Registration Key for Ancestral Quest 14 - by ordering AQ either as a download or on a CD. You will receive an AQ 14 Registration Key which you can use to fully activate the program. If you have successfully downloaded and installed this file, you will not actually need to download the file again—just enter the key once you have completed the purchase.
