My wife lost her contacts on iMac. She has time machine backups. Anybody know the file name or location to be able to find the contacts file and reinstall in present system? Apple tech support was useless, told her it is lost forever!

Figured out how to do it. Open Contacts app, then open Time Machine. Scroll back to date that has contacts. Highlight all the contacts you want to restore, then hit restore. Worked great. You may have duplicate contacts, but you can now edit on your mac.
Suggestion: Once you get contacts all in order, backup to time machine and iCloud.

Suggestion: Don’t ever waste your time with Apple Support. Clueless, and even worse than useless.
