> PERSON OBJECT (many, one per family member)
> EVENT OBJECT (shared): Immigration
> SOURCE OBJECT (1:1 with EVENT OBJECT): Record on NAoA Database
> NOTE (1:1 with SOURCE OBJECT): URL to page on the NAoA database.

> I suppose the point here is that GRAMPS lacks at the moment the

> Something else I am not clear about is, if the source points to the NAoA
> Database and the Citation Points to the Item Number (essentially a

> An example would be a historical book that has been scanned and released
