Karen and others:
 
There is a link to a PDF of the basic entity-relationship diagrams for the
unconsolidated FR family of models from the Library standards and linked data
page on the wiki, under the first section (FR family). The direct URL
ishttp://www.gordondunsire.com/pubs/docs/frdiagrams.pdf
 
The definitions in the Open Metadata Registry for FRBR person and FRAD person
are taken directly from the source documentation, and there is nothing
additional to be found in the source documentation.
 
I posted a message about the relationship between the FR persons and FOAF person
a few weeks ago; can't remember if it was on or off list, but I'll try and dig
it out and send to the public list.
 
Cheers
 
Gordon
