You may add a set of parents by either selecting the {{man button|Add Parents}} or the {{man button|Share Parents}} buttons. The {{man button|Add Parents}} button will create a new family with the Active Person listed as a child. The {{man button|Share Parents}} button will allow you to choose from a list of existing families, and then add the person as a child to that family.
You may edit an existing parents by selecting the {{man button|[[Image:Gramps-notes.png|13px]]Edit}} button next to the parents. If you select the {{man button|-}} button next to a set of parents, then the Active Person will be removed as a child from the parents. This button does not delete the parents' relationship.
See the {{man label|[[Gramps_4.2_Wiki_Manual_-_Categories#Configuration|Configure Relationships]]}} section to configure what details to show or hide etc...
{{man warn| Warning |If you are not careful, it is possible to create multiple families with the same parents. This is rarely what the user wants to do. If you attempt to add a new family that has the same parents as an existing family, Gramps will issue a warning dialog. If you get this dialog, you should probably Cancel the edit, and then use the {{man button|Select}} button to select the existing family.}}
