Almost two weeks ago, I published an article at http://goo.gl/ACmkRF entitled Heredis 2015 to be Available Later this Month. Today, the prediction came true. Heredis 2015, a powerful genealogy program for Windows and for Macintosh, was released today.
Heredis 2015 is a major upgrade. The program now includes a search module for online archives. With the 2015 release, everything needed for online genealogy research is now included in Heredis. The producers of Heredis say there now is no need for additional software to be installed or paid for to have all the tools necessary for your genealogy.
In addition, Heredis 2015 adds:
- Photo tool: Capture faces and signatures on photos and documents. If the pictures or captures of acts are not perfect, you can correct them with the photo editing functions.
- Shared events: Share an event for several participants with one unique data entry. The event then appears in the record of each person.
- Family Tree Mapping: Your ancestors are now shown on interactive maps. Display the places where your ancestors lived.
- Photo albums on Heredis Online: Share your genealogical photo albums on Heredis Online. Visitors to Heredis Online will make the most of graphic pictures and will no doubt get in touch with you if they have information about any person in any photo.
- Search online tool for Archives: The new online archive tool will help you retrieve documents online without leaving your software. It will also help you to make a capture of acts found and to integrate them directly into your genealogy.
Another item in the announcement that caught my eye in the announcement is that the price of Heredis has been reduced: $29.99 US instead of $39.99 US for the 2014 version. Free demo versions are also available so that you can try the program for a while at no cost.
All the details are available in an announcement available at http://heredis.com/download/Press-release-Heredis-2015.zip as a ZIP file that include several screen shots and a PDF file with the announcement. You also might want to watch a video about Heredis 2015 below:
