This It is a standard Gramps backup file using offered as an alternative to the default gzip compression [[Example. Gramps would normally have a ''gramps|example.gramps'' extension for these files but the wiki doesn't permit that extension for uploads]] file and supports a different learning modality. However, Gramps uses the typical gzip (GNU Zip archive, labeled with the extension ''.gz'') format files as its own archival format. So you can change the extension from ''.gz'' back The GrampsPseudonymTree is more abstract and tries to ''avoid becoming obscured by non-essential detail.gramps'' for full Gramps compatibility. The GrampsPseudonymTree example idea is used to provide a predictable avoid losing clear sight of the Tree environment for testing, for working through charting options 's trunk & filter rules, and for experimentingbranches behind the leaves.
The [[Image:Gramps-view.png|link=https://gramps-project.org/wiki/index.php/File:GrampsPseudonymTree(02Feb2020).gz]] '''[[:File:GrampsPseudonymTree(02Feb2020).gz|GrampsPseudonymTree(02Feb2020).gz]]''' file ideally will have an abstraction to represent the various relationships in Gramps.
 
The 'names' are actually generic labels of the relationship. This allows sample reports, charts & filters to be run where the abstracted results automatically self-document & build their own lookup key. It is useful for verifying results when developing an add-on. If designing a '[[Gramps_Glossary#books report|book]]' collation of reports, running the book design on this abstracted Tree of data can produce the foundation for a 'how to interpret this book' section.
 
This abstracted data helps verify that the database was polled correctly and the data placement is appropriate. Also, when generating indexed output based on a [[Genealogical_Numbering_Systems|Genealogical Numbering System]], the output can be directly compared to the relationship without the need for a lookup or search in the database.
 
==About the file==
 
Gramps recognizes 2 variants of files labeled with the ''.gramps'' file format extension. There is a plain text file in a [[Gramps_XML|XML (e'''x'''tensible '''m'''arkup '''l'''anguage)]] structure & a [https://www.gzip.org/ GNU gzip] compressed archive containing that first variant format.
 
The actual downloadable file is a standard Gramps backup file which uses the compressed variant. (The original 70K XML text file of the Tree compresses to a 9K archive.) This not only provides a faster download but also has a built-in checksum integrity validation to ensure the file transferred without damage.
 
Unfortunately, the wiki doesn't permit the Gramps extension for uploads. But since Gramps uses the typical gzip format as its own archival format and merely substitutes the ''.gramps'' extension for ''.gz'' normal extension) files, we'll use the more-standard ''.gz'' extension. After downloading, you can change the extension back to ''.gramps'' for full Gramps compatibility.
==Load <code>GrampsPseudonymTree(02Feb2020).gz</code>==
#* On Apple MacOS the example database is not included in the MacOS AIO(All in one package) and you may download the files from here 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 to indicate that is a disposable tree, such as ''"psuedopseudo"''
# 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>GrampsPseudonymTree(02Feb2020).gramps</code>.

==Grafting multiple Import branches together into a bigger test Tree==
You can duplicate this branch to make a more varied Tree. Usually, repeated imports of the same data is a '''''very bad idea''''' and make a mess of duplicates. But since this is a '''psuedopseudo''' Tree, with placeholders instead of real people, duplicates are simply assumed to be non-dupicatesduplicates.

* [[Example.gramps]]
