Heredis 2014 for Windows | Heredis

Heredis 2014 for Windows | Heredis

I can't recommend this new software for genealogy, primarily because I just learned of it, today.  However, there is a trial version and therefore, you and I both can look it over and decide if it's something we could make use of.

I am happy with my current software program (RootsMagic) and I know a lot of folks use FamilyTree Maker.  But even a simple, dated program like Personal Ancestral File* has options and gadgets that I never took the time to learn.  Heredis 2014 looks as though it was created to complement the online genealogist in a big way.  

Time doesn't allow for a full discussion today of all the various programs/software that are available as tools for the family historian, but I'm looking forward to the future when I can add some of those discussions.

*Read this about Personal Ancestral File being discontinued.  As long as you don't need product updates or offical support, you can continue to use PAF on your computer.  It is a great basic program without a lot of bells and whistles.  For people who want bells and whistles, Internet interaction with their software, look elsewhere.  Or for those wanting to access the FamilySearch Family Tree, RootsMagic is the way to go, (my opinion).  Now, according to Dick Eastman, PAF is no longer available for download from FamilySearch, but I noticed on a Google Search I did that there are a couple of places you can download the program.  As always, practice caution when downloading from an unknown source.
