Revision as of 20:07, 22 February 2020

The GrampsPseudonymTree(02Feb2020).gz file ideally will have an example of the various relationships in Gramps.

This is a standard Gramps backup file using the default gzip compression. Gramps would normally have a .gramps extension for these files but the wiki doesn't permit that extension for uploads. However, Gramps recognizes the typical gzip (.gz) extension as easily as its own. So you can change the extension or not, according to your own preferences.

The GrampsPseudonymTree example is used to provide a predictable Tree environment for testing, for working through charting options & filter rules, and for experimenting.


Load GrampsPseudonymTree(02Feb2020).gz

Follow these steps to load the example family tree:

  1. Find the GrampsPseudonymTree(02Feb2020).gz or GrampsPseudonymTree(02Feb2020).gramps on your system. If the file is named GrampsPseudonymTree(02Feb2020).gz, you can rename it to GrampsPseudonymTree(02Feb2020).gramps and gramps will recognize it. You can copy this file to a temporary location or import it directly from this directory.
    • on MS-Windows AIO C:\Program Files\GrampsAIO64-X.X.X\share\doc\gramps\example\gramps (On MS-Windows ensure you can see hidden files; see User Directory:MS Windows)
    • 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: User Directory:Mac OS X)
  2. Start Gramps
  3. To create a new family tree Family Trees > Manage Family Trees... select the New button. Give it some name, such as example
  4. Open this new family tree. It will be empty.
  5. In Gramps, use Family Trees > Import... to import example.gramps.
    Import Statistics of the example.gramps family tree

Number of new objects imported:

Media objects with relative paths have been imported. These paths are considered relative to the media directory you can set in the preferences, or, if not set, relative to the user's directory.
