The different tabs

Heredis memorizes the last viewed screen and will reopen the corre­sponding tab when you click on Family, Data, History and Search.

Family tabs

They are used to navigate between the different family members and to create them if necessary.

The Immediate Family screen displays the family members who are close to the primary person (parents, grandparents, spouses, chil­dren).

The XXL Family screen shows the family of the primary person, his/her parents, grandparents, spouses and children but also every relative who possibly knew him/her and you will get an XXL view! For further details see XXL Family.

The Ancestors’ screen presents 4, 5 or 6 generations of ancestors of the pri­mary person. Change the number of generations displayed with the indented wheel icon or you may start printing the ancestry as it is displayed.
This screen is dynamic; click the arrows at the end of the line for the following generations. If necessary, you can create new ancestors.

The Descendants screen shows the number of generations of your choice. You may configure its display, with the presentation of gen­erations and the data format. Implex highlighting allows you to eas­ily identify consanguine marriages. The information displayed for descendants as well as for its printing are also available from the indented wheel  icon.


Data tabs

The Personal Data screen shows all the data entered and allows you to add or complete events for the primary person or for the couple. You access the Personal Data tab for any person displayed by dou­ble-clicking on the name.

The Family Group Data screen provides a summary of the informa­tion entered for the primary person and allows you to add all the members of his/her immediate family (parents, spouses, children, step-children) without having to exit this screen.


History tabs

The Migrations screen positions on a map the places of the life of the primary person or any other family member. Pins are numbered to display the sequence of movements. Each place pin indicates the list of events which took place in this place. You can see simultane­ously all the events of all members of the immediate family unit.


Searches tabs

The Searches tabs contain research tools for the primary person and your genealogy.

In Search Wizard sub-tab, the upper part shows the known or miss­ing information. The lower part of the screen allows you to launch any online research with the operator of your choice. You can also restart a previous search, enter a research note, check the details of sources, media, or geographic locations for known data. You can easily manage linear research by using the Branches panel.

From this tab, you can also access Smart Search which allows you to find data of your genealogy by combining different search criteria such as persons, relations, families, events.

You can also replace and modify data entered in a Persons, Families, or Events section via the Find/ Replace sub-tab.
