          Thanks.  I always wondered what that #me was all about.  It makes sense that it is like a anchor tag in html.  It might have been best to list a link to my foaf file and my bio file to see if it looks right when I am sharing the information on the group.  Anyway, it did work.  Thanks.  It can be found here:
I suppose I could have put them in the same file but maybe it is better to have them separate.  Who knows what other applications I might want to explore.

bio:mother and bio:father imply being a foaf:person.  I was able to get the data below to validate by dropping the foaf:Person declarations.  Someone with a stronger grasp of the technical aspects of RDF would have to confirm this, but my interpretation is that since 'Every value of this property is a foaf:Person.', the foaf:Person declarations should be left off.

Also, while a human is likely to understand the meaning, and many parsers are interpret it correctly, the rdf:resources you have listed are foaf:PersonalProfileDocuments the foaf:Persons would be:http://brucewhealton.us/BruceWhealton2/foaf.rdf#me and http://whealton.info/KathleenWhealton/foaf.rdf#me.

           Thanks for the help.  I had the wrong path for dc.  And I did have it inside a foaferson tag.  Now it doesn’t like the way I specify my parents.  I suppose I should add some information to specify a name for my parents and maybe some more information.  And does father and mother need to be capitalized, which doesn’t seem that it would cause the next problem to show up.   It says that ref:resource is not allowed in the rdfseeAlso tag.  Like this:

              <rdfs:seeAlso rdf:resource="http://brucewhealton.us/BruceWhealton2/foaf.rdf"/>
           <rdfs:seeAlso rdf:resource="http://whealton.info/KathleenWhealton/foaf.rdf" />
