Quoting from the Heredis.com web site at http://www.heredis.com/en/heredis-2014-for-mac/:
Heredis offers three different angles for visualizing your family. The Immediate Family Tab displays all the members of the immediate family (parents, spouses, children, grandparents). Go straight to the point by adding a new family member in the Immediate Family tab. Adding a child, a spouse, a parent, a grandparent is obvious! One click and you access the quick entry screen.You can read a lot more at http://www.heredis.com/en/heredis-2014-for-mac.
A new and more comprehensive view of your family shows its composition as a whole: siblings, remarriage, stepchildren, step-brothers and step-sisters, children from other unions of the different spouses… noting or not when they belong to the direct lineage. All the people with whom they lived, all those who they knew are in the extended family. A practical tool for analyzing re-marriages in the family.
A Migrations Map shows the movement of a whole family on maps which are interactive. Within seconds, trace the lives of your ancestors and a whole lineage just a few miles away or at the other end of the world. Pins are numbered to show the sequence of movements and display the list of events recorded in this place. Ideal for following the movements of all members of the immediate family and to have a clearer understanding of the history of a family.
The Search assistant can take stock of your work by displaying the progress of the life of your ancestor. The display of known or missing information for the primary person and those around him/her will highlight certain unexplored tracks. At a glance, you will know if a date or place is missing. You will know if you have associated a source, witnesses, media, notes, with any event.
The Search Wizard proposes various online research tools targeted to sites such as Heredis Online, Ancestry, MyHeritage… Heredis pre-fills relevant data that is already known. At any moment, you may find new information that will add to your work. If a search has not been successful, the record of your previous research allows you to come back to it at a later date.
Memorize different family branches, with ancestors as well as descendants, as a base for your research and its evolution. Each person displayed in the branch has a visual cue showing the status of main events (complete, incomplete, missing). You have a display filter available to choose between branch ends, complete persons, persons for whom further research is required…
The new Descendants tab for the primary person allows you to navigate speedily throughout the generations. It will display the number of generations of your choice. The display is customizable, both for presentation of generations and for the format of data. Highlighting the duplicate lines in red allows you to identify intermarriages immediately. Information on the descendants displayed and the option to print are also available from the indented wheel icon.
