There used to be a version of Family Tree Maker for the Mac. I've got an old copy here. I was already using Reunion, so I don't think I ever tried the Family Tree Maker for Mac program. The copy I have here says it is Family Tree Maker for Macintosh, Deluxe II for Macintosh. Files on the cd are from 1986-87, and the installer is for Mac OS 8/9. Since the current versions of Mac OS no longer support 'classic' it would take an older Mac running an older version of the Mac operating system to use it.

I have no idea if they used the same file structure on both Mac and PC or whether either version will convert files from the other version.

I suspect if I wanted to move stuff in or out, I'd make a gedcom file to move the data. Note that to move a gedcom into Reunion, you need to create a new empty family file, them move the data in from the gedcom. I think on one version I was able to drag the gedcom onto the Reunion icon and get things to work that way, but no longer recall which version of Reunion did that.
