||two uses are to be distinguished: 1) the
relationship that holds between two individuals in a family, e.g. a parent is linked to
a child; this l. may be based on individuation present in a single record; This l. is
also called a lineage link, cf. RLG Chapter 1, §3 ¶1; 2) the relationship
between two or more records that relate to the same entity or individual, cf. individual
record linkage, RLG Chapter 2, §1 ¶2; the first kind of l. may be established by family reconstitution using many
instances of the second kind of l. (cf. family record linkage) (cf.
Newcombe, 1988, p. 105). |
