Better Management of Sources

Heredis now allows you to manage 3 levels of sources: repositories, sources, and source citations. New functionalities to specify the type of evidence and to manage your repositories more accurately.

Alternate Names

You can make a person’s data even more complete by adding alternate names (birth name, maiden name…) in your genealogy. Enter all the data in your possession such as prefix, suffix, given names, nickname!

High-Resolution Photos Online

When you publish data on Heredis Online, your photos are sent in high-resolution. You can manage your media transfers from your software program, in the Media Index, as well as from your Heredis Online account.

Repositories Index

A brand new index to efficiently manage your repositories along with intuitive data entry. Enter all known details (opening hours, email and mailing addresses, etc.) once and for all, then reuse your repository when needed.


You are now able to specify whether you are in possession of the original document or simply of the information without the actual evidence. To assist you better in your searches, Heredis can distinguish this type of information in a source citation.

Source Citation Quality

Specify the source citation quality: Original or Derivative, Primary or Secondary or even Negative… Then find all this data again in the Summary side panel.

Is the source under its Original form or is it a Derivative from the original — in other words, is it an extract, a transcription or a translation?

Is it Primary information (from an individual with direct knowledge of the event or person) or Secondary information (from local history and tradition, from your family history, from a press article, etc.) ?

Do you possess Direct evidence (in other words, the source brings a direct answer to the question) or Indirect evidence (relevant evidence in need of supplementary information) or is it even Negative evidence (the source is relevant in the sense that it doesn’t include the information one should expect to find in it) ?


Slideshow Export

From now on, you can export your slideshow to a USB key and display your ancestors’ photos on several computers or on your TV – if equipped with an internet navigator.

  • A filter to specify which media to include
  • Exporting and HTML saving
  • The ability to play the slideshow on other computers
  • 5 new themes with their own background design and music

And Improvements…

Many improvements to make your life easier: facts, person sources, multiple selections in the sources and repositories indexes, simultaneous search on multiple websites, a completed Smart Search, cleanup tools for the sources index…


With Facts, enrich your genealogy with new data and attach witnesses, places, sources, medias, and dates. You can make as many additions as you like and you can organize them. Make your sheets and books even more complete!
