Text Reports

Text reports represent the desired information as formatted text. Most of the options are common among text reports, therefore they will be described here under Common options.

Common options

Common options for text reports are the filename of the output, the format of the output, selected style, page size and orientation. For HTML reports, there is no page information. Instead, HTML options include the choice of the HTML template, either available in GRAMPS or a custom template defined by you. Optionally, the reports can be immediately opened with the default application.

Tip

The options used in reports are persistent: each report remembers its options used last time.


The options which are specific to a given report will be described directly in that report's entry and on Command line references.

For each report there is a screen with on the top part tabs (like Paper Options...) and on the bottom part the Document Options. The number of tabs varies with the report.

Paper options

With the Paper Options you can change :

  • Paper format (Size, Width, Height and Orientation)
  • Margins (Left, Right, Top and Bottom)

and whether to use metric values or not (in. or cm.).

Document Options

  • Output Format: choose the output format:
    • HTML
    • LaTex
    • Open Document Text
    • PDF document
    • Plain Text
    • Print...
    • RTF document

With the checkbox you can indicate to open the made document your default viewer.

  • Filename: default value is /home/<username>report.txt.
  • Style: default default style . With the Style Editor... you can add Document Styles.

Ahnentafel Report

Fig. 8.32 Ahnentafel Report Result
Fig. 8.31 Report Options


This report lists the Active Person and his or her ancestors along with their vital data.

The people are numbered in a special way which is an established standard called Ahnentafel.

The Active Person is given number 1. His or her father and mother have numbers 2 and 3, respectively.

This rule holds for every person while going back in generations: father's parents are numbered 4 and 5, and mother's parents are numbered 6 and 7, fathers always numbered with even and mothers with odd numbers.

Therefore, for any person having number N in this tree, the numbers of father and mother are 2N and 2N+1, respectively.

   person = n
   father = 2n
   mother = 2n+1

Each entry will consist of a single paragraph, and should contain the following contents:

  • Person number.
  • Person's name.
  • Birth Information, if available.
  • Death Information, if available.
  • Burial Information, if available

The advantage of this report is the specific filter option. Depending on the filter choice (Active Person only, his or her descendants, his or her ancestors, or entire database), the report may contain from one to many individual summaries. Another option for this report is the inclusion of source information when listing events.

  • Filter: see above
  • Filter Person:
  • Checkbox: Include Source Information: whether to cite sources.

Descendant Report

Detailed Descendant Report

Fig. 8.37 Detailed Descendant Report

This report covers in detail the descendants of the active person by generation, following the genealogical tradition of textual descendant reports by generation. It aims to provide all important features expected to be found in these classic descendency formats and has received influence from various sources. The GRAMPS team considers as one of its objectives the viability of this report's adoption by professional genealogical institutions worldwide. As a consequence this is a highly customizeable report.

The report includes a range of vital information, marriages and (optionally) notes and spouses' information. Among the numerous options are the number of forward generations to consider, whether to compute ages, the text-style between complete-sentenced and succinct, and whether to include images. The report utilizes Henry-style numbering by default, and offers d'Aboville-style numbering and Register-style numbering as options.

If you are a professional genealogist and feel that this report lacks something in order to be usable by your institution, feel free to submit a feature request at http://bugs.gramps-project.org. That goes also for amateur genealogists with improvement ideas of course.
