Genealogy and the Semantic Web 2
I’ve been busy converting my parents hard work on their family tree into RDF. I blogged about initial attempts here. It’s far from finished, but at around 500,000 triples already it looks like it’s going to be a lot of RDF!
You can view the RDF (as it is) here, but seeing as RDF is for machines a more human friendly version can be browsed here. So far I’ve been concentrating on linking places of death and birth to various other datasets include geonames, DBpedia, Freebase and Ordnance Survey (though there still a fair few places to link).
To be done:
1) Finish connecting all the places.
2) Sort date formats out.
3) Turn into linked data with dereferencable URIs and content negotation.
A more detailed write up when it’s all finished…
