Here are some screenshots from Ancestris 0.7 under Linux Ubuntu.



Ancestris can be organized using different layouts.

You can have multiple tabs in the same window (here we have the Ancestris Navigator, the Tree View, the Geo View and the Timeline View).

You can decide to make a window float, or dock it. In the following screenshots, you will see the Ancestris Navigator as a tab of the main window, then once you decide to make it float, you see it floating in the second screenshot.

You can have as many windows as you want in the same layout. Here is an example of a possible layout with three windows, the TreeView, the Ancestris Editor and the Table View :

The same one, but with the Gedcom Editor. So a layout with the TreeView, the Gedcom Editor and the Table View.

Ancestris comes with two editors, the Ancestris editor, and the gedcom editor.

Ancestris Editor: This editor allows you to create and modify most of the information about one person without directly modifying the Gedcom file. This is the easiest way to work with Ancestris. (Actually, only the main information about a person is supported.)

Gedcom Editor: You can't find a more powerful editor than this one. With it, you can do everything. This editor is for advanced users. You must know how a gedcom file is built, you have to know the gedcom specs. But we are sure that after two or three months using Ancestris you will use only this editor.

Ancestris Navigator

This is the Ancestris navigator. With it, you have a summary of the close family of an individual, with his/her child(ren), his/her parents, his/her brothers, sisters. A click on a person will open the Ancestris Editor.

Geo View

Here is a screenshot with one of the plugins available, the geoview plugin. Of course you can have multiple views, as they can be arranged as tabs of one of the windows. Here on the main window, you have three tabs, with the Ancestris Navigator (see above, the first screen capture), the Tree View, and the Geo View (the focus on this screen capture has been put on the Geo View). On your right, you have the Ancestris Editor, and below, the Table View.
