{{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:pedigree.png|right|thumb|150px|Pedrigree view]]
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.

The appearance of the children's names in the menu differentiates the dead ends of the tree from the continuing branches.
 
Children who have children themselves appear in the menu in the boldface and italic type, while children without children (dead ends) appear in a regular font. If the Active Person has only one child, no menu will be displayed (since there is only one choice) and the child will become the Active Person when the arrow button is clicked.
 
 
 
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:pedigree-siblings-cut.png|right|thumb|150px|Personal context]]
 
Right-clicking on any person's box in the Pedigree View will bring up the "context menu".
 
Among other useful items, the context menu has sub-menus listing '''Spouses''' , '''Siblings''' , '''Children''' , and '''Parents''' of that person.
 
"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.
 
 
New in version 2.2 is the inclusion of an Events View.
 
Events can be shared between multiple people and multiple families. The Events View lists the all the events recorded in the database.
 
== Events view ==
 
The default view displays the '''Description''' , '''ID''' , '''Type''' , '''Date''' , '''Place''' and '''Cause''' of the event.
[[Image:events.png|right|thumb|150px|Fig. 2.x Events view]]
 
{{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:sources.png|right|thumb|150px|Fig.2.x Sources view]]
Sources View lists the sources of certain information stored in the database.
 
These can include various documents (birth, death, and marriage certificates, etc.), books, films, journals, private diaries, - nearly anything that can provide genealogical evidence. GRAMPS gives you the option to provide a source for each event you record (births, deaths, marriages, etc.). The Sources View lists the '''Title''' , '''ID''' , and '''Author''' of the source, as well as any '''Publication''' information that may be associated with it.
 
The list of Sources can be sorted by clicking on a 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.
 
== Places View ==
[[Image:places.png|thumb|150px|Fig. 2.x.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' '''Name''' , '''ID''' , '''Church Parish''' , '''City''' , '''County''' , '''State''' , and '''Country''' . All of these columns can be used for sorting by clicking on a column heading.
 
Clicking once sorts in ascending order, clicking again sorts in descending order. The {{man label|Column Editor}} dialog may be used to add, remove and rearrange the displayed columns.
 
If a place has been highlighted, you may select the {{man button|Google Maps}} button to attempt to display the place in a web browser.
 
Your default web browser should open, attempting to use either the longitude and latitude coordinates or the place name to display the location using the Google Maps web site.
 
This feature is limited, and may not always produce the results you desire.
 
== Media View ==
[[Image:media.png|right|thumb|150px|Fig.2.x.Media view]]
 
 
The Media View is a list of Media Objects used in the database.
 
Media Objects are any files that relate somehow to the stored genealogical data.
 
Technically, any file can be stored as a Media Object.
 
Most frequently, these are images, audio files, animation files, etc. The list box on the bottom lists the '''Name''' , '''ID''' , '''Type''' , and '''Path''' of the Media Object.
 
The {{man label|Column Editor}} dialog may be used to rearrange the displayed columns, which obey usual sorting rules. The top part of the GRAMPS window shows a preview (if available) and information about the Media Object.
 
== Repositories View ==
[[Image:repository.png|thumb|150px|Fig.2.x.Repositories view]]
 
Version 2.2 adds support for Repositories.
 
A repository can be thought of as a collection of sources.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Each source in the database can reference a repository (such as a library) in which it belongs. The functionality of the Repositories View is similar to the other views.
 
== Notes View ==
[[Image:Notesview.png|right|thumb|200px|Fig.1.y Notes view]]
Version 3.0 added support for Notes. A Note is pure text, as stored in the other objects.
 
 
 
The functionality of the notes View is similar to the other views. The view lists all {{man label|Notes}} stored in the {{man label|Family Tree}}. With the '''Edit ->Column Editor''' you can change the displayed columns. The possibilities are {{man label|Preview}}, {{man label|ID}}, {{man label| Type}} and {{man label|Marker}}.
 
 
 
The {{man label|Type}} can be (amongst others): ''Event Note'', ''Adress Note'',''Source text'', ''Place Note''
 
Double-clicking on a Note in the list will bring up a window where you can edit the Note. You can change fonts, font color and backgroundcolor. A spellchecker is available for ''English'' and your local language.
