Relationship(s) for human family structure
Date: Fri, 17 Aug 2007 10:29:41 -0700
I have a database with individuals in it, and I'd like to store their kin relationships also.
A quick, clumsy way of doing it would be to have three columns: two for individuals, and the third expressing their relationship (e.g. 'ais sibling of b', 'a is parent of b', etc).
But that's clumsy and has redundancies.
Does anyone know of a clean, efficient way to store this information? (I assume it would involve modelling a tree or graph.)
