I am a new user and have a file that I believe is a geneology file with the extension .AQ. Can anyone confirm this is a file that can be imported into RootsMagic 6 and, if so, how?

That is a file from Ancestral Quest http://www.ancquest....s/dbformats.htm and is not a format that RootsMagic imports. You would need the AQ software to generate a GEDCOM or save it as PAF, either of which RM can import. Ancestral Quests Basics is free and claims to create GEDCOM but will not include scrapbook items (media).
