I have been trying to keep my Gramps database in sync with my tree on

Do you have backups? That is the only sure way to recover. Note that GEDCOM does not have the ability to contain all of the data Gramps can encode, no matter who produces it. However, perhaps you don't use that functionality. There could be other issues, however. For example, private and living people might be redacted.

Given all that, what exactly is the issue with your GEDCOM file? Is the data in the GEDCOM file, but not being read by Gramps correctly? If it is missing, there is nothing to do but revert to backups.

I have just installed the latest version of Gramps from the Sourceforge
site.  I am running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS.

Is there any way to repair my existing Gramps database?  I am reasonably
computer literate but I am not a developer.  I do not want to go running
stuff in Terminal "on the off-chance it might work", if you know what I

I have seen references elsewhere to grampify.py but from what I can tell you
have to run this over the Ancestry GEDCOM before it is loaded.  I also do
not know if this is trustworthy code, or where to get it from.

Any help or advice would be appreciated.  Thanks.
