The file appears to be a compressed file with an sqz extension.  Does anyone know what utility could be used to open this file?

How large is the file ?
If its a big one - trying opening by media player

SQZ can be a squeeze extension

I usually do this for unknown file types
Save the file on desktop.

start > run > notepad
drag and drop the file in notepad
Go through the file of characters and try to spot something familiar / app-ext

File was on client's floppy drive.  She does not remember how she got it.  Timeframe sometime early 2004 maybe.  However, it appears that she knew how to extract the information at the time.

"Might be some old application?"  Dead on!
 
I have been reviewing this file and have discovered that at the time, the information contained within the file was exported into Ultimate Family Tree 3.0.  She does not have that program anymore, but did still have the old hard drive that Ultimate Family Tree 3.0 was installed on.  After correcting a hard drive recognition issue, I was able to access the old hard drive and run the program.  Imported the data file into Ultimate Family Tree 3.0.  Then converted to GEDCOM format to be exported to the current Family Tree Maker program that she is using.
