Heredis 2024

My family across time

Mixed Wheel

Combining the best of both views on a single graph: the Ancestors and Descendants wheels reunited!
Added bonus: the primary person is displayed with his/her spouse, or spouses if he/she has had more than one. Thus, you can get a more detailed analysis of their descendants! This new feature is also available in the Descendants Wheel!
Export it as a pdf file to send or print, and gift it as an original present. Display it at genealogy shows to illustrate the life of a famous character!

Rename your media!

All too often, we add pictures to our genealogies that bear rather obscure names… Rename a picture easily from your Media Index, but also from the Photo Tool, so you can better organize and clean up your file!
One small step forward, but one GIANT leap for Heredis genealogists.

User testimonial
“And this is really the first time I’ve found a nearly-perfect Heredis version right from the start, so there should be no apprehension whatsoever about using it. Your determination to have, I’d say, a “reliable matrix” seems to leave you, or so I feel, more time for the “packaging”… This is solid stuff…“
Jean-Paul. User of Heredis 2024 for Windows

Keeping your data safe

We’re all keen on protecting what we publish from our family trees: whether it’s on the Internet or on a sheet of paper intended for the general public, there’s private or confidential information in our trees that shouldn’t be published.
That’s why Heredis has made a few important improvements in this area!
From the Media Index, you can now select several media and make all of them private in just 2 clicks.
To help you avoid blunders, it is now possible to hide confidential persons in graphs: handy when you want to share a wheel containing confidential information.

Compress, transmit, open!

With the “Prepare to transmit” feature, opening your family tree in another Heredis application becomes as easy as 1-2-3! Compress your entire file with all associated media and open it easily in any other Heredis application: Mac to PC, PC to Mac, iOS to PC, Mac to Android… This new Heredis file format makes it easy to share your tree in an unlimited way, since the size can now exceed 2 GB per file.

The Heredis 2024 Mobile App

  • The same source can be associated several times with an event or a fact.
  • Import or export with the new compressed format (.hmwz) to open files from a 2023 or 2024 version and from all platforms.
  • Better default language management

Over 50 improvements and fixes

Because we’re always listening to our users and their feedback, this new version of Heredis is packed with improvements and fixes! Discover some of these below…

Windows & Mac improvements

Integrate data from other software programs

When importing a Gedcom file from another software, some data may not be recognized by Heredis. You can now choose to integrate them into your file at the right spot in your software, by importing them as events or facts, or choose to ignore them if they are not relevant (importing the CREA Gedcom 7 tag, for instance). And there’s even greater compatibility with the Family Historian and Mac Family Tree software programs.

Enriched indexes for the Families from my Village document

The indexes for Families from my Village now include the total number of persons and the total number of places.
The occupation index has been added, with the number of occupations mentioned in the book and the reference to the related persons.

You can now choose the location format for your documents

From now on, display locations any way you like in Sheets, Books, and Wheels! You can choose the format: just the City, the City with Postal Code, the City with Short Postal Code, the City with County, the City with State/Province, the City with Country, the City with County, State/Province and Country, the Full Place Name, or just the Postal Code, or Short Postal Code, etc.

Private Notes now easier to access and view

You now have a visual symbol showing whether a note is private or not, without the need to go through the editing window. The button for making them private is also directly accessible. This applies to Person, Search Data, Families, and Events notes.
