Paste the raw '''[[:Category:Tutorials|Tutorials]]''' outline for the '''[[:Category:How_do_I...|How Do I...]]''' article above the '''See also''' section. This might start with pasting in a copy of a useful thread from one of the Gramps maillists.== Troubleshooting ==
Places of Ancestor Events that do not appear as pins on the map are probably missing the correct GPS longitude and/or longitude. Determining which Places are missing and need correction can be finicky work. This is most easily done with custom filters... but it takes multiple stages.
Saving this file as a 'work in progress' will insert the code behind this reference template. (Preview only show The objective is to find the results, not Places of Events of Ancestors of the markup formatting control[[Gramps_Glossary#home_person|Home Person]].) You can use the appended special formatting example template to pre-populate a virtual Copy&amp;Paste clipboard. Snip pieces to paste special formatting to enhance the outlineThat's 4 stages of filtering.
You can set up a [[Example_filters|multi-stage of filter]] that shows only Places for Ancestors & [[Gramps_{{Version manual}}_Wiki_Manual_---_Categories#.E2.9A.99_Configuration_Options|configure the Places Category view]] to show the Longitude & Latitude columns. This will tell you how many of Ancestor related Places will be omitted from being plotted on the map.
Adding a ''feature documentation'' link pointing to For this multi-stage custom filter, create the introduction following Cascade of the interface element in the wiki will relieve you of the burden explaining how to find the feature.custom filters:
