But if you don't know the birth-date, or only know the year, you need some other way to indicate the relationship. You can do this by having them share a single birth event. Take for example, the twins Thomas and Peter. When you create the Birth event for Thomas, make the {{man label|Description}} say "twin births of Thomas and Peter". Then add a reference to that same event to Peter's event list, either by ''[https://wikipedia.org/wiki/Drag_and_drop drag and drop]'', or by using the {{man button|Share an existing event}} button. Then set the shared Role to "''[[Gramps_Glossary#primary|Primary]]''". {{man tip|Manually set [[Gramps_Glossary#event_role|Roles]] for shared Events|It is important to set the {{man label|Role}} for shared events. When adding a new Event to a Person, Gramps assumes the person will play a "''Primary''" Role and guesses that does not yet exist by default. However, the Role cannot be guessed for participants in a shared Events and defaults to "''[[Gramps_Glossary#unknown|Unknown]]''". Non-primary participants of a Birth event might include a midwife, doctor, birthing coach... but the Role should never be left as "''Unknown''". <br /><br />Be certain to set the Role to "''Primary''" each time a Birth event is shared for multiple births.}}Now when you view the databaseevent list for either Thomas or Peter, you will see the {{man label|Description}} reminding you that they are twins. And as you add details (such as birth date or place)to the birth event for either of them, click on those details will automatically display for the other as well. You can search for shared births by using a custom filter with the Events [[Gramps_{{man version}}_Wiki_Manual_-_Filters#Events_Category_2|General rules]] ''Events with the particular type''Add(where the type is ''birth'') in combination with ''Events with a reference count of <count>'' button on (where count is greater than 1) and where all rules apply. You can also use the toolbar'''Families with twins''' rule in a Family custom filter.
