Kinsources and Repast Sat, June 26, 2010

Hi Doug,

I think this is the last correspondence we had regarding that work:

Doug,

I got Repast to load the .net files and recreate the networks in repast. From there, we can iterate through the generations and rules for marriage such as you describe can be followed (either stochastically or just based on a strict rule set). Anyway, the only issue I've noticed is that loading the pajek network using JUNG, which is how I have been reading in the networks you gave me in Repast, does not seem to preserve the red or black links, so you can't figure out the wife or husband lines so easily. The work around for that is that I created a secondary file that provides the information for the networks, but this is a bit cumbersome. Anyway, if you have some other way to differentiate the male and female marriage lines, in addition to the pajek networks, that might help, otherwise i can just create my own inputs that supplement the .net files. Maybe I am doing something wrong, such as the partitioning you mentioned in pajek, but i haven't noticed this making any impact. The good news is at least we can create the networks, iterate through, and create different network layouts in order to reproduce your generation layout (the one you sent along on your wiki site). We just need to find a better way to setup the initial network.

Anyway, I left it at that and have not revisited since. I can take a look at this in the coming weeks and try to address the concerns. I will be on travel for the next three weeks but I should have time (at least during long overseas flights!). Sorry for the delay.

I was using your JASSS article as the guide. Do you want me to continue doing this or are there other outputs that you would like to have? Also, let me know if you want me to use any of the data you indicated in your email.

Thanks, and I hope your doing well.

Mark

The work on kinship is coming out in the Handbook of Social Networks in 2010 and our European wing and others have now collected more than 76 kinship datasets at KinSources: http://kinsource.net/kinsrc/bin/view/KinSources/

This research community could very much use the ability to read into Repast datasets in Pajek network format (kinship networks) and be able to use the algorithms we discussed to do simulations, starting with permutations, and then moving to parameterized simulations ABM etc.

Any progress there, further thoughts etc?

Best, Doug White

History

KinSources datasets - 76 - Of the 76 ethnographic cases with network datasets contributed to Kinsources, 27 have coded data from Murdock’s (1967) Ethnographic Atlas and 8 from the SCCS: Aa01 (SCCS002), Aa05 (SCCS013), Cc13, Cg04 (SCCS052), Ec07, Eg01, Eh04, Eh06, Ej03 (SCCS077), If02 (SCCS100), Ig09, Na02, Na03 (SCCS124), Na12, Na13, Na15, Na20, Na22, Na23, Na24, Na43, Na44, Nb05 (SCCS130), Nf03 (SCCS143), Nd46, Nd48, Ng07 (SCCS046).

How does it work?

Hi

Right now I think you should put the data set up as is with enough documentation to use the data set and without losing any information. You don't have to put the metadata in all at once ... you can always come back to add more (and more versions for that matter). I don't want to standardise on a lossy and inflexible format like GEDCOM. So just put it up. If there is a problem with the current submission process or advice to make it easier please let me know so I can fix it (it was 'fixed' several times last year when we first started entering data).

What I think we want to aim at is accepting data in whatever format it comes in, and having online conversion software from one type to another (to the extent this is possible). I am thinking this would consist of being able to translate each format into a schema based on my current XML format (xkin), which is extensible both by embedding (incorporating new data structures within a data component) and with component structures (similar to defining a concatenation of a net file with a clu file), and then from that to the desired output form, like gedcom or net. There are currently three components in my own xkin files, node set(s), edge set(s) and metadata members of which can have many types. Once I get exams out of the way (I am Chief Examiner, a job which probably makes no sense elsewhere, but means I am maximally busy for the next two weeks) I will put the xkin specification on the site for comment and amendment.

Later

new home for Kinsources

Dear Doug,

Some quick information and questions regarding the KinSources project: We are about to transfer the location of the Kinsources site (without changing its adress) from Canterbury to Paris, specifically to the CNRS-based "Very big environment Adonis" that offers us free space with continuous backup and an option for perennial storage (30 years). Mike of course agrees with this and there will also be a second webmaster (besides Mike), Olivier Kyburz from the TIP group.

Also, we are planning to submit a new ANR project exclusively centred on kinship data archivation and management. If successful, this would allow us not only to code a large number of genealogical datasets, but also to develop a more interactive interface for the KinSources website and to include analytical tools (such as Pgraph, Puck, Geneaquilt etc.) as webservices. We hope that you agree to be part of this initiative as a foreign "associate" participant.

DRW: Wonderful development. Great work. all of you. Yes I agree to serve as a

foreign "associate" participant. Am retired now so more time to do research. Makes quite a difference. Having Kinsources on a long guaranteed life is outstanding. I can send a mediawiki shell if you want to build a wiki site like my intersciwiki. There is now one in Xi'an China from my shell. Users can sign in, with approvals if wanted, and it is much easier for community members to edit.

Finally, can you tell us where the ELBY dataset comes from and who coded it? It's the one concerning the families from the Calais area (also known as the Famillies du Nord).

DRW: Elby is the last name of the NPdC website for Famillies du Nord. When I

asked for the gedcom he sent me a copy with permissions to analyze.


Kind regards Michael and Klaus
