José João Almeida and Rui Castro Mendes. Hunting Ancestors: A Unified Approach for Discovering Genealogical Information. In 8th Symposium on Languages, Applications and Technologies (SLATE 2019).

This paper presents an unified approach for discovering genealogical information. It presents a frameworks for storing information concerning ancestors, locations, dates and documents. It also intends to provide a framework that is able to perform inference concerning dates by using constraints and for handling relations, locations and sources. The DSL presented also aims to help users store information from heterogeneous sources along with the evidence contained therein.
