I don't think that makes sense. "Family" is not well
defined. Currently we are working on the following
interpretation of family, called Family History:

        health risk modifiers in a unit of people in close
        personal contact

Mostly, this will be genetic. Certain things can be
non-genetic (say, "open TB of spouse" or "MRSA in
neurodermitis of stepson").
