Data Entry, one of the Heredis strong points
The time you spend on data entry will be reduced by 50 % because you will enter data for all the members of the family on one screen.
No longer any need to move from one screen to another, everything is done on the Family Group Data tab: the central person, the parents, unions, children, and even spouses of the children are shown.
There are other data entry tools for you: entry of an individual, direct data entry on the Immediate Family, entry on a family chart…
Only display the data fields you need. The Customize format is designed for you to select the important data which apply to your research.
You will not enter data for your parents and near relations in the same way as for more remote cousins… because you have found unusual information in certain civil acts. Maybe because certain ancestors’ lives have been written up in old books.
Add a child directly, or a grandfather on the Immediate Family tab. On the Personal data tab, you may enter the whole life of an individual, including all unions. With the Family Group Data tab, you can create a whole family line.
Permanent data entry help at all times. Heredis will propose a choice of all places of the French and English speaking countries, given names and occupations. For example, gender is entered automatically according to the given name. But for ‘Lindsey’, you will be asked to choose it for a man or a woman.
It is possible to keep a file free from duplicates.
When creating new persons, a major risk is to enter two people for one and the same ancestor.
Heredis brings you a powerful tool which will identify all potential duplicates. It includes persons entered with a similar name, but also individuals carrying a variant of the name you typed.
However, when importing data from another genealogist, you are not immune from entering persons who are already in your file. Heredis will search them out for you.

Write the Book of your Family History
Heredis will write up the history of your ancestors for you. The illustrated book allows you to have a fully customized document written automatically. Here is an opportunity for making an original gift for a birth or a wedding, or to present this beautiful work at a family gathering.
Details which count
You will appreciate being able to report on all your ancestors with complete accuracy.
A report for unions, for events or for acts or deeds to be located, – you have to hand a great tool for taking stock of your research.
Print your report with your normal word processor or export in various formats (Excel, PDF, Text).
Heredis has all the tools for formatting a text. Enter notes for individuals, couples, events, places, names, media …
For example, add a note specifying the context of the photo of the birthplace of an ancestor.
Enjoy making them more readable by changing their format: a little color, a word in bold, titles, bulleted lists.
A real treat!
Heredis automatically calculates the date of birth of a person according to the age given on any act.
It also manages perfectly the different calendars: Gregorian, Julian, Republican, Hebrew and movable feasts.
It knows how to convert dates automatically with the Dates panel, a converter tool for dates and movable feasts.
