Discover Heredis 2017

New version available now.

A dashboard to drive your genealogy

Pilot your genealogical activities in real time and on a daily basis with a real on-board computer. At a glance, you know where you are in your genealogy: what you have already found and what you still have to do.

Progress of the researches
Found ancestors

A measure of performance

Watch your progress at a glance: genealogical and demographic statistics speak for you. Heredis publishes encrypted tables and a graphical representation of your genealogical data in the form of curves, histograms or sectors.

Widgets to know everything

Indicators to give you information about the persons in your file.


In no time, you know what you have recently added. Detailed information allows you to analyze your file in depth and measure the progress of your work.

Focus on what is important

Follow only the indicators you have chosen. Pay attention only to what’s important to you: drag and drop widgets in your workspace to monitor the progress of your genealogy, identify what you need to do, and achieve goals.


Smart search and serial processing

Use the Heredis 2017 Smart Search to scroll through your data using combined search criteria and find exactly what you’re looking for.

» Research example #1

Problem: You work on your English ancestors and try to establish their offspring.
Search: Choose the Birth or Baptism events that took place in England.
Then add a second criterion to indicate that the number of children of these persons must be greater than or equal to 1.
Treatment: Mark these persons or print the list to find all the information about your English cousins!
Easy isn’t it?

» Research example #2

Problem: you want to transmit your file but you do not want to export information about contemporaries.
Search: all persons presumed to be alive.
Treatment: Mark them “confidential” and export your file without including confidential persons.
So smart eh ?!


The Find / Replace function

Search for “St” and replace with “Saint”. Or list all persons living in Missouri in 1821, when the state was proclaimed as a slave state, and edit a note for each of these persons to specify the context of the moment. Simply practical.
