Started working on the events, which prove to be quite complicated and raised a number of questions for AB. Had a discussion on the planned output which needs to be ready by the end of the year. Added rendering of relatives into the personography, renamed some of the XML source files, and added a bit of documentation on how this provisional build is working. We are going to end up with too many redundant pointers if I’m not careful, though. I need to decide on a single location for each link (in a person record, or in an event record, or whatever), and let the HTML build expand those out into links in each of the related locations, rather than having a fragile structure in which links point in both directions. This will take some thought.

On Friday I added <linkGrp>s into all the person records pointing to other persons with whom they may be identical, taken from three tables in the db, and then checked the results for accuracy against the db. This is yet more pointer-proliferation, but I can see how once we’re done with the db, it could be collapsed into a single centralized set of pointers.
