#[[File:Gramps-family.png|right]]'''Family''' ({{icon|fami}} ''[[#primary_object|prim. obj.]]'') - Contains the information specific to relationships between people. This traditionally contains one or two parents and zero or more children. A family unit is created in Gramps by [[Gramps_{{man version}}_Wiki_Manual_-_Entering_and_editing_data:_brief#Specifying_a_relationship_using_the_Relationship_View|adding Parents to an individual]], by [[Add_a_spouse|adding a partner/spouse]] to an individual, or by adding a family first then adding the people.<br />The Family relationship is a core concept in Gramps. It depicts the basic relations between people. Commonly this will contain a father, a mother and some children, however, it can also contain only parts of this (<abbr title="exempli gratia - Latin phrase meaning 'for example'">e.g.</abbr>, two brothers, a mother and child). People can be part of several families (adoption, remarried, ...)
#'''<span id="family_role">Family</span>''' (''[[#event_role|event role]]'') An event can be coupled to a family, denoting that the entire family was involved in the event. Typically the Marriage event will be coupled to a family with event role ''family''

;<span id="filter">Filter</span>:
:A [[Gramps_{{Version manual}}_Wiki_Manual_-_Filters|filter]] in a database finds (or hides by 'filtering out') records, displaying only those records that match certain criteria. (The criteria are comparison rules describing some attribute of a record.) Layers of criteria can be applied but each layer requires additional processing and slows performance of the interface. <br />The [[Gramps_{{man version}}_Wiki_Manual_-_Filters#Filter_vs._Search|basic Search]] is a single criteria filter. The search value is compares only one attribute of a record that has been selected from a pop-up menu. <br />The Filter Gramplets will compare several predefined common attributes simultaneously with simplified access to changing the search value. The default is for exact matching but [[Gramps_{{man version}}_Wiki_Manual_-_Filters#Regular_Expressions|Regular Expressions (RegEx)]] can be used for pattern matching. A Custom Filter may be also layered in. <br />A [[Gramps_{{man version}}_Wiki_Manual_-_Filters#Custom_Filters|Custom Filter]] adds richly complex [[#rule|Rules]]-based comparison with [[Example_filters|layers of intersection]] options for those rules. Custom Filters allow repeatable filters to be created with pre-defined rules and values to be matched. Beyond interactively hiding (or revealing) records in views, Custom Filters are used to set limits for exporting, setting scopes for reports, and targeting tool actions.<br />In addition to the [[Gramps_{{man version}}_Wiki_Manual_-_Filters#Which_filter_rules_in_which_Category.3F|built-in rules]] for filtering, [[Rule_expansions|addon rules]] are available for Custom Filters.
