Are the instructions the same for both Mac and PC? The exact same way to use the software?

Thanks, Jerry. I have passed this info along to her. I'll let you know if it works!

Okay, first--in case you might not have noticed--I did qualify my opening gambit.


"Hi.  My first Mac was the original 1984 Mac so I sort of know Macs."  <--- emphasis on the 'sort of.'  My husband encouraged me to buy that first Mac because he knew how un-technical my brain is and that I would never manage the IBM PC I had my eyes on!

So yes, you are correct--it is Sierra, not High Sierra, and I didn't even notice there was a difference.


Also, the file is .rmgc file I have is 1.3 megabytes so you are correct! It is empty.

I will check with my SIL and see what info she needs to create the file. All I know is that she was trying to send me only my own info, since her files have tens of thousands of people in them, and wasn't sure how to do it. I am pretty sure we're talking about a GEDCOM file.

I have it set up to notify me every time there is an upgrade. It was only a few days ago that I received a notification and did the upgrade. Within the last week.  I'll see if I can figure out exactly when.


It may be that they don't roll them all out at the same time so the upgrades go out in waves?

When I use File>Open to open the .rmgc file, nothing opens. an empty file opens. Nothing is in it.


It is possible that she needs instructions on how to copy a file from her database and send to me.


She has a number of family genealogies in her database since she has done so many searches and kept them all together.  She was having trouble figuring out how to only send me my tree.


Once she had that, was there anything special she had to do to send it to me for my Mac or would it be the same file she would have sent me if I were on PC?
