Routines to handle family data with a pedigree object (2014, <10.1159>). The initial
purpose was to create correlation structures that describe family relationships such as kinship and
identity-by-descent, which can be used to model family data in mixed effects models, such as in the coxme function.
Also includes a tool for pedigree drawing which is focused on producing compact layouts without intervention. Recent
additions include utilities to trim the pedigree object with various criteria, and kinship for the X chromosome.
