Make yourself or your spouse an active person (i.e. navigate to yourself
or your spouse). Then switch to the Family View and add a new child by
clicking the buton that is second from the top on the right of the Children
list (the "New" button). Enter the data for the new person (your daughter's
brother) and click OK.
The child will be added to the database and to your family as a natural
child for both parents. You may edit relationship of the child to each
parent by selecting the child, right-clicking, and choosing "Edit the
child-parent relationship" item. E.g. if this is not your child but
your wife's child, you would select "Birth" in relationship to her
and "Stepchild" in relationship to you. Forgive me if this is not the
right setup, but I don't know the details :-)
If the child is already in the database, then you don't need to add him to
the database. In that case, you just need to add him to the family, which
can be done by pressing the third button from the top (the "Select" button).
You then need to select the person from the list. The list is filtered to=
only display people who could possibly be the child (based on he birthdates=
In case GRAMPS is wrong, you can always override that filtering by checking
"Show all" checkbutton. Anyway, select a child and specify the relationships
to both parents the same way.
Hope this helps,
P.S. The manual should be pretty clear on this and also much more detailed
about keybindings (in a separate appendix) and other stuff. Give it a try :=
