= How do I add a child to a Person or Family? =
== Adding a child from the Relationship View ==
 
A child may be added to a family in several ways, depending on the context.
You may either add the Active Person as a child of a new family, or as the child of an existing family.
To add the Active Person as a child of a new family, select the {{man button|Add New Parents}} button from the toolbar (in older versions of GRAMPSGramps, this button was simply called ''Add''). This will bring up a new Edit Family form with the Active Person listed as a child. You can then add parents by selecting existing people from the database or by creating new people.
To add the Active Person as a child of an existing family, select the {{icon|share}}{{man button|Add Existing Parents}} button from the toolbar (in older versions of GRAMPSGramps, this button was simply called ''Share''). This will allow you to select an existing family, and adds the Active Person as a child of that family.
=== Adding a Person as a Child of the Active Person ===
You may add a child to a family in which the Active Person is a parent in one of two ways. If the family already exists, then it will appear in the {{man label|Family}} section of the display. Click on the {{man labelbutton|edit{{icon|stock_edit}} Edit}} icon, and the exiting family will be displayed in the Edit Family form.
If the family to which you want to add a child is not displayed, then you should select the {{man button|Add Partner}} button (in older versions of GRAMPSGramps, this button was simply called {{man label|Spouse}}). This will display an Edit Family form in which the Active Person is listed as either the father or the mother. At this point, you may add children and/or a spouse.

= How do I add twins/triplets/etc? =
When you look at the list of children in a family, those with the same birthdate birth-date are obviously twins. But if you don't know the birthdatebirth-date, or only know the year, you need some other way to indicate the relationship. You can do this by having them share a single birth event.
Take for example, the twins Thomas and Peter. When you create the Birth event for Thomas, make the {{man label|Description}} say "Birth twin births of Thomas and Peter". Then add a reference to that same event to Peter's event list, either by ''[httphttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drag_and_drop drag and drop]'', or by using the {{man button|Share an existing event}} button. Then set the shared Role to "''[[Gramps_Glossary#primary|Primary]]''". Set {{man tip|Manually set [[Gramps_Glossary#event_role|Roles]] for shared Events|It is important to set the {{man label|Role}} for shared events. When adding a new Event to a Person, Gramps assumes the person will play a "''Primary''" Role and guesses that by default. However, the Role cannot be guessed for participants in a shared Events and defaults to "''[[Gramps_Glossary#unknown|Unknown]]''". Non-primary participants of a Birth event for both people might include a midwife, doctor, birthing coach... but the Role should never be left as "''Unknown''". <br /><br />Be certain to set the Role to "''Primary''"each time a Birth event is shared for multiple births.}}Now when you view the event list for either Thomas or Peter, you will see the {{man label|Description}} reminding you that they are twins. And as you add details (such as birth date or place) to the birth event for either of them, those details will automatically display for the other as well.
Now when you view the event list You can search for either Thomas or Peter, you will see shared births by using a custom filter with the Events [[Gramps_{{man label|Descriptionversion}} reminding you that they are twins. And as you add details such as birth date to _Wiki_Manual_-_Filters#Events_Category_2|General rules]] ''Events with the particular type'' (where the type is ''birth event for either '') in combination with ''Events with a reference count of them, those details will automatically display for <count>'' (where count is greater than 1) and where all rules apply. You can also use the other as well'''Families with twins''' rule in a Family custom filter.
= Adding other informations information =
== Adding an occupation or other special information ==
It is sometimes indicated in old documents that the person's activity was brewer, nails maker, woodchopper, etc. Edit You might add a [[Events_in_Gramps#Vocational|Vocational Event]] and include this as part of the description in the person's event or . Alternately, you could make this an [[Gramps_{{man version}}_Wiki_Manual_-_Entering_and_editing_data:_detailed_-_part_3#Attributes|Attribute]]: select the Attribute Tab. There , add a new Attribute to add , and select type the wished desired information. Type what you want to add.
