-===== =====+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 family, unrelated one-name lists or temporary databases imported from other systems using GEDCOM. 
 +Events such as birth, baptism, death, burial, will, marriage and divorce have individual notes and links to Sources. Similarly occupations and residences have dates and links to Sources. Such groups of information can occur up to 250 times to record full historical information. ​
-PediTree is a genealogy system for researchingstoring and printing your family history. PediTree's strengths are its compact storage and indexing of very detailed records of People, Marriages and Sources such as Census records and other record types that you can create yourself. The Personal Genealogy Program Pedigree was developed in 1987 for MSDOS and now runs under Windows - even Vista. PediView was then released for Windows 3.1. +Other files on your PC can be referenced in any text field to show picturesweb pages or documents. PediTree ​will open them during ​its session if you select them

 +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 documents. All reports can be changed by yourself and new versions added if required. ​

-  * [[pediview|PediTree for Windows]]+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.
-PediTree ​for Windows is now updating all types of Pedigree databases and has most of Pedigree'​s featuresIts 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.+PediTree ​can export your whole database, or a selected part of it, as a GEDCOM fileIt can also create Web pages with indexes ​and ancestor or descendant charts.

-  * [[latestpv|Latest ​PediTree ​Version]]+==== 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. ​
-  * [[famdesc|PediTree family ​descent]]+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. 
-  * [[charts|PediTree charts]]+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.

 +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 a database, you can create additional record types to hold different sorts of information and link them to existing Person, Marriage or Source records. ​
-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 tree, or in indented charts of fixed 5-generation birth brief or compact indented outline charts.
