Start with Genealogy}}''' How do I start with Genealogy using Gramps? '''
Preparation== If you are just starting your genealogy, it's best to begin with yourself, and add other people as they connect with you.
One of the most important things in genealogy is that you record how and where you found/ deduced the information.}}'' This is known as a Source. What makes this so important is '''at a later time you will need or want to revisit this information. ''' Having a source for your information will also '''create trust with other researchers. '''
So, if you begin with yourself, you are '' interviewing'' yourself, which is a primary source on the subject. From this primary source you obtain events such as birth day, baptism day, graduation, . .. . The source of the events allows you to deduce a person existed, as part of a family.
With this, we have our main terms for '''genealogy: sources, events, persons and families. ''' Apart from these, Gramps allows you to store Notes, Places, Media ( pictures, movies, documents) , and [[ Repositories in Gramps| Repositories]].
So, let's now start with adding information into Gramps.
