Choosing a database

If GRAMPS is started without a database selected, the initial screen will have little functionality. Most operations will not be available. To load a database, select either New to create a new database, or Open to open an existing database. GRAMPS keeps track of your recently opened databases, and these can be selected by clicking on the arrow next to the Open button and choosing from the drop down menu.
