Genealogical databases can contain information on many people, families, places, and objects. It's therefore possible for a View to contain a long list of data that's difficult to work with. GRAMPS gives you two different means for controlling this condition by allowing you to filter a list to a more manageable size.
== Relationships View ==
[[Image:Family.png|right|thumb|250px|Fig. 2.7 Relationships View]]
The Relationships View displays all the relationships of the Active Person (the selected person). Specifically, it shows his or her parents, siblings, spouses, and children.
The Relationships View is designed to allow for quick navigation. You can quickly change the Active Person simply by clicking the name of any person listed on the page. Each name is actually a hypertext link, similar to a web page.
[[Image:Family.png|right|thumb|200px|Fig. 2.7 Relationships View]]
The Relationships View displays the following sections:
{{man note | Spouse |We use the term spouse for sake of simplicity. However, please note that spouse may in fact be a domestic partner, a partner in a civil union, or various other similar relationships between two people. Spouse relationships are not required to be only between a male and female.}}
[[Image:Reorder.png|right|thumb|150px250px| Fig. 2.8 Relation reordering]]
You may add a family by selecting the {{man label|Add Spouse}} in the toolbar. This will create a new family with the Active Person listed as a father or mother.
Selecting the Edit button next to the spouse will allow you to edit the displayed family. Clicking the Delete button will remove the person from the displayed family.
<br clear="all" />
{{man warn| Remove a person |Removing a person from a family does not delete the family. The person is removed as the father or mother, and any other relationships in the family continue to exist.}}
== Family View ==
[[Image:Family_List.png|right|thumb|150px250px|Fig. 2.9 Family List View ]]
The Family List View displays a list of all families in the database. From this view, you may add, edit, or delete families. The default display lists the ID, Father, Mother, and Relationship. Children cannot be displayed on the screen in this view.
<br clear="all" />
{{man warn| Remove button |Unlike the Relationships View, clicking the Remove button in this view will remove the family from the database. All people will remain, but all relationships between the people in the family will be removed.}}
== Pedigree View ==
[[Image:pedigreePedigree.png|rightleft|thumb|150px250px|Fig. 2.10 Pedrigree view]][[Image:Pedigree-child-cut.png|right|thumb|250px|Fig. 2.11 Children menu]]
The Pedigree View displays a family tree of the Active Person's ancestors. The Pedigree View shows up to five generations, depending on the size of the window. Each person is indicated by a box labeled with his or her name, birth and death information, and optionally an image if available. Two lines branch from each box. The top one shows the person's father and the bottom one the mother. Solid lines represent birth relations, while dashed lines represent non-birth relations such as adoption, step-parenthood, guardianship, etc.
To the left of the Active Person is a left arrow button. If the Active Person has children, clicking this button expands a list of the Active Person's children. Selecting one of the children makes that child the Active Person.
[[Image:pedigree-child-cut.png|right|thumb|150px|Fig. 2.11 Children menu]]
The appearance of the children's names in the menu differentiates the dead ends of the tree from the continuing branches.
The right-hand side of the window shows two right arrow buttons. When the top button is clicked, the Father of the Active Person becomes the Active Person. When the bottom button is clicked, the Mother of the Active Person becomes the Active Person.
[[Image:pedigreePedigree-siblings-cut.png|right|thumb|150px250px|Fig. 2.12 Personal context]]
Right-clicking on any person's box in the Pedigree View will bring up the "context menu".
"Greyed-out" sub-menus indicate the absence of the data in the appropriate category. Similar to the children menu above, Childrens' and Parents' menus distinguish continuing lines from dead ends.
<br clear="all" />
== Events view ==
[[Image:Events.png|right|thumb|250px|Fig. 2.13 Events view]]
New in version 2.2 is the inclusion of an Events View.
The default view displays the {{man label|Description}} , {{man label|ID}} , {{man label|Type}} , {{man label|Date}} , {{man label|Place}} and {{man label|Cause}} of the event.
[[Image:events.png|right|thumb|150px|Fig. 2.13 Events view]]<br clear="all" />{{man warn| Meaningful event description |Because events can be shared, you should take the extra time to give each event a unique and meaningful description. This will help you find the correct event if you decide to share events.}}
The list of Events can be sorted in the usual manner, by clicking on the column heading. Clicking once sorts in ascending order, clicking again sorts in descending order. The {{man label|Column Editor}} dialog can be used to add, remove and rearrange the displayed columns.
== Sources View ==
[[Image:sourcesSources.png|right|thumb|150px250px|Fig. 2.14 Sources view]]
Sources View lists the sources of certain information stored in the database.

== Places View ==
[[Image:placesPlaces.png|thumb|150px250px|Fig. 2.15 Places view]]
The Places View lists the geographical places in which the events of the database took place. These could be places of birth, death, and marriages of people, as well as their home, employment, education addresses, or any other conceivable reference to the geographical location. The Places View lists the places' {{man label|Name}} , {{man label|ID}} , {{man label|Church Parish}} , {{man label|City}} , {{man label|County}} , {{man label|State}} , and {{man label|Country}} . All of these columns can be used for sorting by clicking on a column heading.
