Note that 3.1.1 is not the most recent, it actually is from over a year ago.  There have been 6 newer releases of Gramps since then!  (

Version 3.2.3 is the most recent, and is available on SourceForge:

Thanks for the advice. I'm an on-again/off-again user of gramps, and what I was doing just didn't feel right, so I've undone the shared events.

I am using the latest version (3.1.1) of GRAMPS windows and the person editor does not show family events. I've got a ubuntu box, so I may try installing there to check our a later version.

Thanks for your help.

However, I have started adding these births as shared events in the
father's and mother's entries as well. This allows me to see a list of
the individual's children in the individual's entry rather than having
to go to the family entry to find them.

I personally only share birth events between twins.  This way when I
find additional information on the birth and add a note (for example)
they both immediately have it.

I'd go as far as saying I don't think you should share the child's
birth into the parent.  Seems like the wrong way to do things.  Among
other things, it will probably really mess things up if you ever
decide to share your database with a family member, especially if that
person is not using Gramps.

If this is a usability thing, you may want to enter a feature request
instead.  For example, in the newer version(s?) of Gramps, I see the
"Person Editor" now lists both events for the person, as well as
events in a family.  Would it be helpful if this event viewer also
showed a subset of events from children in these families?
