and this per-patient family history record would need to be codeable (to be 
able to be associated) with a code the same way as the narrative rows / 
episoses / issues

In other words:

… if we are interested to find patients with a family history of hypertension 
… if hypertension is (in for example ICD9 coding) = 410
… then it would be helpful to be able to search for patients whose family 
history is associated with ICD9 = 410

Now if any one family history item record would be likely associated with only 
one "code" then the code could be a column in the family history however if it 
could be multiple codes per family history item then I imagine the codes will 
need to be split into a separate table. Is that what we expect to be the case?
