I am in desperate need of some help in opening old files. I am trying to open three files that I am told were created on a Mac in 1993. The files are from (again I am told) Ancestral File but I cannot confirm this. The files are: "Warlick ED 27_1_93 Archive"; Warlick PAF 7_1_93 Archive" and "W Data Files 7_1_93 Archive". None of the three files have an extension and I can not determine a file originator from a header, etc within the files. I have used a program to "move' the files to a PC disk and have opened other files on these disks.

These files are a genealogy history and the book is no longer available. Can anyone give me guidance on recovering the information on these files.
