Thanks for this. I'll take a look at the duplicate property. Hopefully
it's just an error in the documentation generator which I rewrote last

I'm not very enthused about adding heirOf but I can see it would be
useful. Perhaps you could define that in another schema and still use it
in your data.

I'd be interested in seeing your Irish genealogies if you are able to
share. Are you using the bio schema with them?

All the best,
