Nick,
If anyone knows how to handle old Macs it's you. But, I think most genealogy programs now read and write a common interchange data file, like the CVS tables used today.
If the same was true in the past (don't know when it started) he may be able to export it from the old Mac and mail it to himself to read into a new genealogy program.

I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .
