Aldo,

A quick game plan that agile enough for the problem at hand:

Find an ontology or instance data set, simply sponge it (preferably 
using the URIBurner [1] instance).

Example:

http://linkeddata.uriburner.com/ode/?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fontology.nursix.org%2Fsahana-person.owl  
(which is now loaded as a result of the Sponger URL).

This gets the ontology into the Virtuoso instance and from there we can 
do all sorts of things re. ontology mapping, data reconciliation,  and 
reasoning etc..

Other thing to note:

Please can just put N3 in a text file an publish link to Web, once on 
the Web they get sponged. This an example of where Turtle and N3 trump 
other representation formats for RDF, you practically scribble your 
triples on a magic surface etc..

Worst case, make a triple via HyperTweet.

The following People oriented ontologies are already in place:

1. FOAF
2. Relationship
3. PIM
4. Family -- http://web.nickshanks.com/ns/family



Links:

1. http://uribuner.com/
2. http://uriburner.com/fct -- you can then use Full Text, Data Object 
Labels, or Data Object Identifiers to Find information and circulate via 
URLs
3. http://uriburner.com/sparql -- sparql for the more advanced
4. http://uriburner.com/isparql -- easy way to SPARQL and then share the 
Results and Query Defs via URLs (permalinks).
