This section is designed to give you provides the basic knowledge necessary to start putting entering your genealogical information into Gramps. It will explain how to enter people into the your family tree (also called a database ) and how to specify their family relationships. (A more detailed explanation will follow in the next chapter: [[Gramps 5.0 Wiki Manual - Entering and editing data: detailed]].)
First, let us identify the types of information you can enter into your family tree using Gramps database. These include:
* Personal information about an individual (names, addresses, birth and death dates, etc.)
* Information about an individual's relationships (marriages, divorces, civil unions, etc.)
* Sources that document your research
{{man note| Keybindings (Keyboard Shortcutsor Hotkeys) |In addition to interacting with Gramps through menu items and buttons, you can use its extensive set of "keybindings." For more information, see [[Gramps_5.0_Wiki_Manual_-_Keybindings|Appendix B: Keybindings reference]].}}
Now let us take a quick look at explore how you can enter and edit these various types of genealogical information.
== To add or edit a person ==
There are multiple ways to add a new person to the Family Tree (database)your family tree. We will cover some of them as we proceed.
{{-}}
===Add a new person===
[[File:People-tree-view-grouped-people-50.png|400px450px|thumb|right|Fig. {{#var:chapter}}.{{#vardefineecho:figure|{{#expr:{{#var:figure}}+1}}}} People Category - Tree View - Grouped People]]
The simplest way to enter a person to add them from the {{icon|peop}}{{man label|People}} View. While you are in the {{icon|peop}}{{man label|People}} View, click the Toolbar {{man button|+}} button.
{{-}}
[[File:xxxxEdit-person-window-new-person-50.png|400px450px|right|thumb|Fig. {{#var:chapter}}.{{#vardefineecho:figure|{{#expr:{{#var:figure}}+1}}}} Edit Person - window - New empty editor]]
The {{man label|Edit Person}} dialog will be shown and you can enter any data you know about this person then select {{man button|Ok}} to save the new person.
{{-}}
===Edit an existing person===

To edit information about a person already present in the databasefamily tree, select the person from the {{man label|People}} View and click the Toolbar {{man button|[[Image:Gramps-notes.png|13px]]Edit}} button.
{{man note|1=Alternate ways of adding or editing a person from the {{icon|peop}}People View |2=You can also use the Menu {{man menu|Edit->Add...}} and other items available under {{man menu|Edit}}. Or you can right-click on the person and select {{man label|Add...}} or {{man label|Edit...}} from the context menu that pops up.}}
People can also be added to the database family tree in the {{icon|rela}}{{man label|Relationships}} View, {{man label|Edit Family}} dialog, and other places where it makes sense.
{{-}}
== To specify a relationship ==
There are two primary ways to specify relationships between people - :* using the {{icon|rela}}{{man label|Relationships}} View and . The {{man label|Relationships}} View is usually used to build multiple relationships to a single person.* using the {{man label|Edit Family}} dialog from the {{man label|Family List}} View. The {{man label|Family List}} is usually used to build all the {{icon|rela}}Relationships within a single family at a time. The {{man label|Relationships}} View is usually used to build multiple relationships to a single person.

Now a question ?: Does the person who will form the relationship with the Active Person already exist in the databasefamily tree? If yes, click the {{man button|Select}} button to the other person. You will then be able to browse through the list of people in the database family tree to select the one you want. If not, click the {{man button|+}} button. This will allow you to add a new person to the database family tree and to specify the relationship this person has to the Active Person.
{{man note|1=Filtering|2=By default, Gramps filters the displayed list to show only those people who could theoretically have a relationship with the Active Person. That is, Gramps only shows those people whose birth dates and death dates fit within the lifetime of the Active Person. If you wish, you can add a person to the list by clicking the {{man button|+}} button. To completely override the filter and display all people from the databasefamily tree, check the '''Show all''' box.}}
{{man tip|To search a person on dialog selector|Remember that you can get an entry on the list by typing the first letter on your keyboard. (see [[Gramps_5.0_Wiki_Manual_-_Navigation#Finding_records|Finding records]])}}
== To specify parents ==
You can specify Active Person's parents in the {{icon|rela}}{{man label|Relationship}} View (See {{man label|[[Gramps_5.0_Wiki_Manual_-_Categories#Select_Family_selector|Select Family]]}} - selector). A little care is required to prevent the creation of {{man label|[[Gramps_5.0_Wiki_Manual_-_Entering_and_editing_data:_brief#Duplicate_Family_warning_dialog|duplicate families]]}}. If you wish to add the Active Person to an already existing family, you should click the {{man button|Select}} button. If the family including the parents does not already exist, you should click the {{man button|+}} button.
