-PediTree is a genealogy system for researchingstoring and printing your family historyPediTree'​s strengths are its compact storage ​and indexing ​of very detailed records ​of PeopleMarriages and Sources ​such as Census records ​and other record types that you can create yourselfThe Personal Genealogy Program Pedigree was developed in 1987 for MSDOS and now runs under Windows - even VistaPediView was then released for Windows 3.1. +Each database of up to 32,000 related Person, Marriage, Source, Census..files has its own definitions of fields ​and reports in a data dictionary control file.  There is no limit on the number ​of different databases. These may be different branches ​of your familyunrelated one-name lists or temporary databases imported from other systems using GEDCOM. 
-  +   
-  * [[existing|Pedigree Users' Group & useful websites]]+Events ​such as birth, baptism, death, burial, will, marriage ​and divorce have individual notes and links to SourcesSimilarly occupations ​and residences have dates and links to SourcesSuch groups of information can occur up to 250 times to record full historical information
  
-  * [[pedigref|Pedigree features]]+Other files on your PC can be referenced in any text field to show pictures, web pages or documents. PediTree will open them during its session if you select them. 
  
-All reports ​can be changed by yourself and new data types added. Events ​such as birth, baptism, death, burial, will, marriage and divorce have individual notes and links to SourcesSimilarly occupations and residences ​can occur 250 times with dates and links tooGEDCOM and CSV files can be exported from Pedigree ​and now PediTree improves CSV import too.+==== Output Facilities ==== 
 +Printed ​reports ​come in two forms: [[:​pedigree-software:​tables|tabulated in columns]] or fixed layout (such as a five-generation ​birth-brief)The columnar form can be exported in CSV, tab-delimited ​and RTF formats for inclusion in word-processed documentsAll reports ​can be changed by yourself ​and new versions added if required
  
-  * [[pediview|PediTree ​for Windows]]+Descendant and Ancestor trees can be drawn in the British drop-down wide tree form (which can be printed over many pages), in a compact ​[[:​pedigree-software:​talltree|tall tree]], or in [[:​pedigree-software:​charts|compact indented outline charts]]. All can be tailored to show varying amounts of detail. One way is shown in this [[:​pedigree-software:​famdesc|PediTree ​family descent]] chart.
  
-PediTree for Windows ​is now updating all types of Pedigree databases and has most of Pedigree'​s features. Its editing facilites, combined with GEDCOM import from RTF files converted from the LDS 1881 CD-ROM make the capture of sources and censuses independent of whether you decide ​to link some of the individuals ​to your Person and Marriage lineage records. See below.+How your information ​is displayed on the screen or in printed output is determined by a special [[:pedigree-software:​pedigrep|picture script]] language that is built into the database. Making changes ​to the supplied picture scripts is one way in which printed reports and trees can be altered ​to suit your needs.
  
-  * [[latestpv|Latest ​PediTree ​Version]]+PediTree ​can export your whole database, or a selected part of it, as a GEDCOM file. It can also create Web pages with indexes and ancestor or descendant charts. Selection techniques include identifying connected groups of people (relationship islands) and/or records that meet specified critera. ​
  
-  * [[famdesc|PediTree ​family descent]]+==== Checking and Changing your Information ==== 
 +PediTree ​has a global find in View mode and Search and Replace in Edit mode that will either search all records in the DB or a selected list of records. A list is produced in View mode before you invoke the powerful Replace facility, which then shows which records were changed. ​
  
-  * [[charts|PediTree ​charts]]+Full lists of all places that are used in any of PediTree's events, occupations and residences can be listed and sorted alphabetically to resolve inconsistencies. A picklist can be created for use when editing place names to use one of those already used. An existing filtered list or tree plan of a family branch can be sorted by place of events or date. 
  
-  * [[morepedi|More PediTree images]]+Similarly, all dates used in the same groups of data can be listed and sorted chronologically for examining the events across your ancestors that occurred at similar times. An existing filtered list or tree plan of a family branch can be sorted by date of those events.
  
-Descendant ​and Ancestor trees can be drawn in the British drop-down wide tree (which ​can be printed over many pages), or in compact tall treeor in indented charts of fixed 5-generation birth brief or compact indented outline charts. All can be tailored ​to show varying amounts ​of detail with any of the data fields which can be selected using ......+==== Making Changes ==== 
 +PediTree'​s databases, reports ​and charts ​can be altered to suit your needs. You can have as many databases as you wish to deal with the families you are researching. In databaseyou can create additional record types to hold different sorts of information and link them to existing Person, Marriage or Source records
