Upgrade Questions & Answers
Note: this web page is for people who own Reunion 8, Reunion 7, and older versions. If you already own Reunion 9 and you need the latest, free maintenance update, click here.
Am I eligible to purchase the upgrade?
To use the upgrade version, you must own a previous version of Reunion (any previous version). It is not necessary to install an older version.
Where can I purchase the upgrade?
The Reunion 9 upgrade is only available directly from us. (If you don't already own Reunion, you may purchase the new version directly from us or from our dealers.)
How much does the Reunion 9 upgrade cost?
This depends on whether you purchase a download or a CD. We recommend purchasing the download unless you have "dial-up" internet service.
If you want to purchase a download, the cost is $59.95 (unless you live in Pennsylvania; in which case the addition of sales tax makes the total $63.55).
If you want to purchase a CD, the cost is $59.95 plus shipping and handling ($5 in the USA, $7 in Canada, $10 overseas) and sales tax if you live in Pennsylvania (6%, or $3.90). Here are the totals:
- If you live in the USA, the total cost is $64.95
- If you live in Pennsylvania, the total cost is $68.85
- If you live in Canada, the total cost is $66.95
- If you live overseas, the total cost is $69.95
Note: If your shipping address is outside the USA, the total costs shown above do not include Customs or Excise Duty which may be added by your government on shipments from the USA.
Is there any advantage to ordering a CD?
No. If you have fast Internet service, you should purchase the download. You can make a backup copy on blank CD for safekeeping. Note: you must choose one or the other: either the download or a CD.
How do you ship the upgrade?
If you purchase a download, nothing is shipped. If you purchase a CD, shipping is via US Mail. Delivery time overseas is approximately two weeks (perhaps more).

I never sent in my registration card. Can I still purchase an upgrade from you?
Yes; however, the upgrade will only work if you own an older version of Reunion. It is not necessary to install an older version.
I've never bought Reunion. Where can I buy it new?
Will my existing data (from Reunion 5, 6, 7, or 8) be compatible?
Yes. Reunion 9 will convert your family files. Instructions are included, and are also posted on this web page.
I can't install Reunion 6 (or 7) on my new Mac. Can I upgrade?Yes. Learn more.
I have a very old version of Reunion (earlier than version 5). Will I be able to upgrade?
Yes. However due to significant changes in the data files, you must send your data files to us for conversion. There is no need to send any data files if you have an older version of Reunion and you haven't entered any information. If you have version 4, please visit this web page for instructions.
Is a demo version available for version 9?
