I just spotted a post on the GenealogyXML at yahoogroups.com list suggesting
Topic Maps for genealogy data. RDF *should* be really good for this, with
the one possible difficulty being how to manage the "the gravestone says he
died in 2003" kind of data given the state of contexts & reification.
I reckon the bits needed for simple genealogy should sit very nicely
alongside FOAF, and it would allow the foafnaut to do families too.
A quick Google doesn't find much - there is an old DAML vocab at
also rdf2ge12.zip RDF to GEDCOM ...
(fyi, I know close to nothing about gen. - I just thought family trees would
make a good example use of SVG for 'Unleashed', but it started getting too
big to fit in the space)
