Import and export of GEDCOM files is fast and seamless. Heredis is unforgiving about importing sources that don’t follow strict formatting, however, and you may find yourself with a long list of untitled sources.
Documentation and publication
You can output customizable books and a variety of reports (called Sheets) to your word processor, but not directly to PDF, RTF or HTML formats. Notably lacking in Heredis’ otherwise powerful and attractive output options is any way to directly generate a family website.
You can search by name, find duplicates or filter by criteria such as dates of events, relationships, even the cryptically labeled but useful “Figures” (age at death, age at marriage, number of children, etc.). Indexes cover surnames, given names, places, sources, media and oddly, occupations. There’s no built-in searching for data online.
