Documentation and publication
Heredis excels at creating beautiful slideshows, wall charts and websites, but it has some quirks and weak support for documenting sources. It’s not the best all-around program for most genealogists, but those with French ancestry may appreciate the ability to publish a family tree on a site that gets a lot of traffic from French genealogists.
