When tracing the genealogy of any given family it's traditional to produce a family tree - which is a 2D listing of parents, children and siblings focusing on the line of succession that gave rise to one specific individual. But every individual (usually) has two parents, and each of them has two parents, and so on... so a true family history is more like an inverted 3D cone shape with each earlier tier larger than the one below it. The full detail is normally impossible to show in a classic tree structure, but it seems to me that if Infranodus can be used to somehow represent the parent / child / partner / sibling relationships, the whole genealogy of one individual could be illustrated back as far as records permit. However I have no idea of how to start structuring such a database/ mind map. Has anyone else tried something like this?
