Hello Shirley, my name is***** will help as much as I can.
The data is now on a Windows Vista PC, correct?
It was done in Microsoft Word?
What OS X is on the Apple Mini? Look in the Apple menu in 'About this Mac'.
Does the Mac Mini have Microsoft Office installed?
Lets start with that and see where it goes please.

(Posted by JustAnswer at customer's request) Hello. I would like to request the following Expert Service(s) from yo. Let me know if you need more information, or send me the service offer(s) so we can proceed.
Tech Support Specialist: Daniel, Macintosh Specialist replied 3 years ago
Office is not bad. The entire suite is $140.00 and is downloadable to the Mac.

Just make sure you click the download button.
Or you can use Pages. Looks like an ink bottle in the dock.
That should have come with the Mac.
Pages reads and use Word docs fine.
I suggest trying Pages first though. You may need to install Treemaker on the Mac, it should use the same license it had for the Windows version.
Get it here.

Or it is just $40.00 which isn't bad, it has features the version you had doesn't.
Hope that helps, if not please let me know.

I have Family Tree Maker 3 on the Mac mini. I have a CD with the old backup information on it but it doesn't want to take it. Help!
Tech Support Specialist: Daniel, Macintosh Specialist replied 3 years ago
Ok, now I think I see the problem.
With the CD mounted does it open?
What kind of message does it give you?

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
