== 1. Plan a the research visit to a Repository ==Aunt Martha (AM) is planning a visit to a one of her Gramps Repositories: the UK National Archives at Kew, London.
Aunt Martha (AM) is planning a visit to the UK National Archives at Kew, London. She wants to produce produces a report from GRAMPS that tells her all of the Sources that are held in the National Archives that might be of interest to her. She  The report also wants the report to give gives her a list of all the people in her database Tree that could potentially appear in those sourcesSources while marking (via stylesheet allowing font options such as single/double strikethrough, without showing color or typeface) or hiding those that to which she already has the source attached to.  She would also like the generates a detailed checklist report to include which includes a table with a row for each person and a column for each piece of information that the Source should contain so that she can print it . Again, Person already cited have a check in the column and the row hidable or styled.  She prints out and fill it these reports for use while she is at Kew.
== 2. Import Sources for a Repository ==
AM has discovered the Ancestry is a great Repository that she knows is a good place to find genealogy sources relevant to her database. She wants to import the information about the sources that are held by Ancestry so that she can start her research.  She clicks on the 'Import Repository' button and gets a list of all of the Repositories that are in the online GRAMPS Repository database and imports Ancestry. This populates the Sources that are contained in Ancestry and add adds Ancestry to her list of Repositories.
== 3. Create Research Plan for a Person ==
AM sits down at her computer. she She has an hour to spare and what wants to progress her research.  She selects her Grandfather, (Frank ) in the Person View. GRAMPS shows her a research plan for Frank that shows all the Sources that in which supposedly mention Frank might be found in (but have not yet been fully validated to support an event) and the type of information that can be found in each Source.  ''(Some of these sources had been logged in Gramps because they had been cited in Secondary Sources. But AM wants to capture the originals.)'' It also shows her the Repositories that contain those sources Sources so that she can immediately start to look for the information. It allows her to strikethrough Sources which have already been checked, have already been cited (and validated), or have already been acquired/collected into her private Repository.
= Reports =
# It must be possible to exclude Sources altogether. Many Sources are not related to documentary evidence and you would not want them cluttering up the reports.
# It must be possible to exclude Sources on an Person. If you know that you have checked a Source for an Individual you want to exclude that Source from showing up next time you run the reports.
# It must be possible to list Persons who have already been completely researched in the Source. Recognizing previously explored rabbit holes is necessary to avoid redundant research.
= Implementation Plan =
For instance:
'''key''' '''value'''
_r_:start_date 1841-06-06
_r_:end_date 1841-06-07
= Future Possibilities =
* Convert a Gramps generated Research Plan into a Research Log entry.
* [ Extract some informations from archives to Gramps]
* [ Typeless data entry]
* [[Addon:ImportGramplet]]
* [ MARC support]

Jerome's [[Addon:RepositoriesReport|RepositoriesReport]] is an example what can be done at the moment. This GEP seeks to develop this idea further. =See also= *[[Citation_examples:Ancestry.com_records_without_citation_(Cambridge_Alumni)| records without citation]]*[[Citation_examples:England_Census|England Census]]*[[Citation_examples:FamilySearch|FamilySearch model]]
