    On the disk it says "For IBM computers and 100% compatible computers". and I cannot find any info in the instruction book. It is version 9.0 of Family Tree Maker

    It should say on the disk or the box whether it is Mac compatible.

Mcdevito75 here, I would figure you could if it's on Disk (CD) If it is, simply un-install it on your old computer and install in your new computer. Hope this helps.

How do I transfer my Tree Maker files from my PC to my iMac.


Family Tree Maker has a Mac version of their software available on their website.
This link also provides some possible solutions for your situation for converting PC version to Mac.

http://ancestry.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/3916



If you have any reason to not switch to the Mac version of Family Tree Maker, or have other PC software that may not not be available for Mac, there is an easy solution for this as well, but does require purchasing a copy of Windows. You can install Windows as a second operating system on your Mac to support those applications not compatible with Mac. This can be done using the built in "Bootcamp" utility on your Mac. This allows you to boot to any version of Windows or Linux, as well as your Mac OS. Another method is to install "Parallels" for Mac, which also allows you to install multiple operatings systems, but with the added ability to Mac OS X and Windows simultaneously.

Try saving a copy of your family tree as a .GED file. for example "familytree.ged" onto a USB drive or disk, then put said disk in your MAC, open family tree maker and try and import your tree.

Files using the .ged extension seem to be the most portable.

I have a Vista (Windows) version of Family tree maker. I want to transfer my info from that version to a Mac version. Which versions will be compatible for the transfer??


There is a Family Tree Maker File Migration Utility that you run on the PC to convert either FTM 2010 or 2011 files to FTM for the Mac. Here's the link to the info on Ancestry.com:

Swift FAmily Ancestry v 2.0


I found a few places you can buy it, though none of them seem to specify if it's version 2.0.

You can purchase and download it directly from here: http://my-buy-it-now.com/products-page/downloads/swift-family-ancestry-family-tree-maker-downloadable/

Or you can order boxed versions to get shipped to you from these places:
disks o plenty
Amazon


Also, it looks like Swift Family Ancestry creates files in gedcom file format. Many other genealogy programs can open that file format, so if you found a different program that you liked better, you may be able to open your file with that other program, also.

The files can be transferred as long as you know where they are saved. As to opening them, just ensure that the version that you have is for Vista and you should be OK.
