Subject (JSON)

The Subject data type defines the abstract concept of a genealogical subject. A subject is something with a unique and intrinsic identity, e.g., a person, a location on the surface of the earth. We identify that subject in time and space using various supporting conclusions, e.g. for a person: things like name, birth date, age, address, etc. We aggregate these supporting conclusions to form an apparently-unique identity by which we can distinguish our subject from all other possible subjects.
