There are two primary ways to specify relationships between people:
* # By family:<ol style="list-style-type:lower-alpha">: <li> using the {{icon|rela}}{{man label|Relationships}} View. The {{man label|Relationships}} View is usually used to build multiple relationships to around a single person.</li> * : <li> using the {{man label|Edit Family}} dialog from the {{man label|Family List}} View. The {{man label|Family List}} is usually used to build all the {{icon|rela}}Relationships within a single family at a time. </li></ol># By Association<ol style="list-style-type:lower-alpha">: <li> using the {{man label|[[Gramps_{{man version}}_Wiki_Manual_-_Entering_and_editing_data:_detailed_-_part_1#Associations|Associations]]}} tab of the {{man label|[[Gramps_{{man version}}_Wiki_Manual_-_Entering_and_editing_data:_detailed_-_part_1#Edit_Person_dialog|Edit Person]]}} dialog. Adding a Person and specifying the type of Association (godparent, coworker, pallbearer, childhood friend, etc.) identifies an interpersonal relationship. </li>: <li> using the {{man label|[[Gramps_{{man version}}_Wiki_Manual_-_Entering_and_editing_data:_detailed_-_part_2#Link_Editor|Link Editor]]}} feature of the {{man label|[[Gramps_{{man version}}_Wiki_Manual_-_Entering_and_editing_data:_detailed_-_part_2#New_Note_editor_dialog|Edit Note]]}} dialog. Cross-referencing a person via a Person link in a Note will associate that linked person to the person where the note is attached.</li>: <li> Persons who share a reference (sources, notes, colocated in the same places, etc.) have an indirect or proximal relationship.</li></ol>
===Specifying a relationship using the Relationship View===
[[File:Relationships-category-view-5051.png|thumb|right|350px|Fig. {{#var:chapter}}.{{#vardefineecho:figure|{{#expr:{{#var:figure}}+1}}}}]]
To specify a new relationship to the [[Gramps_Glossary#active_person|Active Person]], switch to the {{icon|rela}}{{man label|Relationships}} View and you will see this individual indicated as the "Active Person". Next to the {{man label|Family}} label is a {{man label|Add}} button (typically represented by a {{man button|+}} sign).
== To specify parents ==
You can specify the Active Person's parents in the {{icon|rela}}{{man label|Relationship}} View (See {{man label|[[Gramps_5.1_Wiki_Manual_-_Categories#Select_Family_selector|Select Family]]}} - selector). A little care is required to prevent the creation of {{man label|[[Gramps_5.1_Wiki_Manual_-_Error_and_Warning_Reference#Duplicate_Family_warning_dialog|duplicate families]]}}. If you wish to add the Active Person to an already existing family, you should click the {{man button|Select}} button. If the family including the parents does not already exist, you should click the {{man button|+}} button.
