The '''File:GrampsPseudonymTree(02Feb2020).gz
''' file ideally will have an example of the various relationships in Gramps.

This is used to provide a predictable Tree environment for testing, for working through charting options & filter rules, and for experimenting.

==Load <code>example.gramps</code>==
Follow these steps to load the example family tree:
# Find <code>example.gramps.gz</code> or <code>example.gramps</code> on your system. For example:
#* on Linux <code>/usr/share/doc/gramps/example/gramps/</code>. If the file is named <code>example.gramps.gz</code>, rename it to <code>example.gramps</code> and gramps will recognize it. You can copy this file to a temporary location or import it directly from this directory.
#* on MS-Windows AIO <code>C:\Program Files\GrampsAIO64-X.X.X\share\doc\gramps\example\gramps</code> (On MS-Windows ensure you can see hidden files; see [[Gramps_{{Version manual}}_Wiki_Manual_-_User_Directory#MS_Windows|User Directory:MS Windows]])
#* On Apple MacOS the example database is not included in the MacOS AIO(All in one package) and you may download the files from and import the Family Tree. (On MacOS ensure you can see hidden files; see: [[Gramps_{{Version manual}}_Wiki_Manual_-_User_Directory#Mac_OS_X|User Directory:Mac OS X]])
# Start Gramps
# To create a new family tree {{man menu|Family Trees > Manage Family Trees...}} select the {{man button|New}} button. Give it some name, such as ''example''
# Open this new family tree. It will be empty.
# In Gramps, use {{man menu|Family Trees > Import...}} to [[Gramps_{{Version manual}}_Wiki_Manual_-_Manage_Family_Trees#Importing_data|import]] <code>example.gramps</code>.
#;Import Statistics of the example.gramps family tree

Number of new objects imported:
* People: 2157
* Families: 762
* [[Sources|{{man label|Sources}}]]: 4

Media objects with relative paths have been
imported. These paths are considered relative to
the media directory you can set in the preferences,
or, if not set, relative to the user's directory.

==Connecting to the example Media Objects==
There are seven example Media Objects (JPEG and PNG images) provided but the relative media path starting point (the Base Path) hasn't been defined in the Preferences. So these images won't be displayed until the media path has been re-defined. The media path can be reset now or if starting to experiment with images.
# In {{man menu|Edit > Preferences}}, change the {{man label|Base path for relative media paths:}} in the [[Gramps_{{Version manual}}_Wiki_Manual_-_Settings#General|{{man label|General}}]] tab. This could be in a new directory, to keep it separate to your own family tree media. (eg On Linux <code>~/gramps/example/</code>)
# Copy the media files from the example directory (that you found in step 1, above) to this media path directory.
{{man note|The example.gramps family tree data file| Alternately, a replacement Gramps ''[ example.gramps]'' [[XML|{{man label|XML}}]] family tree database file (without the Media Objects) can be downloaded from the GitHub file store.}}
