I have been wandering the Web searching for my Wife's relatives
(surname Kilcawley. Know anyone?) and have learned very quickly that there
is a *huge* amount of genealogy stuff/activity on the Web.
Most of it revolves around a genealogy file format called GEDCOM
that apparantly originated with the Church of the Latter Day Saints.
This is a snippet of Gedcom:
1 NAME Archibald /BARD_(Beard)/
1 SEX M
2 DATE SEENOTES
2 PLAC Antrim,Ireland
2 DATE FEB 1765
Sure looks like a cool XML application to me! I mean,the whole
point of these GEDCOM files is publishing/interchange of
genealogy data. Richly structured hierarchies. Oodles of
scope to show of spiffy XLL linking, spiffy XSL rendering,
intelligent search agents. The whole nine yards.
Has anyone looked into this? If not, anyone interested
in helping to get a ball rolling?
