So ~ 0.1 of FHx (which will go into gnumed-next) will not link family history 
items to the blood-relative, even when the blood relative did already exist (or 
get created) in gnumed.

However perhaps ~ 0.2  of FHx can expand the FHx records so that they would 
have an f-key to the actual person, if the person did exist in GNUmed and maybe 
a column in which to record the consent of the linked person to allow their 
side of the health issue to be disclosed?

and even if we did the above, it would be without the creation of a "families" 
table, because a families table needs linkages like

- any person to multiple other individual persons with some codification of the 
link (e.g. sibling)
- the links then provide a basis to link other people (all siblings being 
siblings of each other, for example)
- at which point it all gets very complicated!
