Reunion GEDCOM help

I was hoping someone would be willing to help me out.

My grandfather gave me a genealogy file of his years ago. I have never been able to open it because he uses Mac and Reunion.

I have waited too long, and he is unable to help me with this now. I do not have a mac, and I don't know anyone that has a mac that also has Reunion.

Would anyone be able and willing to try opening this file and exporting a GEDCOM of everything for me?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I got the file, but it was not a readable file in Reunion 9. I asked Kate to find out the version and see if we can work with that.

I Posted this yesterday, not sure what happened to it! Anyway.....I called Leister ( Reunion developers) and asked why this file will not open. I was told it was probably corrupted because links to the Reunion program were missing. He asked me to send it to him and he would try to fix it.

Got an email yesterday that he had opened the file and added the code that was missing and sent it back to me. It was originally a Reunion 8 file and he updated it to a reunion 9 file AND sent me the GEDCOM also. I suceeded in opening the file and have sent both back to Katy. YEA!!!!
Happy researching Katy!!

Wow, that's awesome! Good thinking. One more reason that Reunion is the best Genealogy program. Their customer service is outstanding.

I'm so glad you were able to help Katy.
