The Resource Description Framework (RDF) is a language for representing information about resources in the World Wide Web. This Primer is designed to provide the reader with the basic knowledge required to effectively use RDF. It introduces the basic concepts of RDF and describes its XML syntax. It describes how to define RDF vocabularies using the RDF Vocabulary Description Language, and gives an overview of some deployed RDF applications. It also describes the content and purpose of other RDF specification documents.

[GenealogyXML] RDF Data Model for Genealogy Using Named Graphs for Provenance

8:13 20-6-06 genealogie
Hi all.

I've been working lately on an RDF-based data model for genealogy. It is for the comp sci master's thesis which I'm working on. I found a lot of inspiration in the ideas that were debated on the recent "XML or RDF?" thread here, particularly Christopher Lakey's thoughts in post 2642.

Hoping to benefit further from group members' insights, I've put together a few web pages on what I've come up with so far. They can be found at (which links to the two tutorials at and
The first tutorial covers an ontology for genealogy information. The second demonstrates using named graphs for provenance information (I don't yet have an actual provenance ontology yet, though; any input here would be much appreciated).

Please let me know if anything is unclear or if there's anything I should further consider.
