Genealogical tree query visualization
Open, LowPublic

Description

Genealogical trees (also known as family trees or pedigree charts) have multiple "parents", making the currently visualizations unusable. Current tools like https://tools.wmflabs.org/reasonator/geneawiki2/ only work for small families, it (probably) ends in a loop when the family gets "complicated" (incest, connection with different families).

Seems like the graph view already offers a "Hierarchical layout up to down" option, but it's quite hidden. Will ask @Lucas_Werkmeister_WMDE to write a ultimate query for this that might be added to the EasyQuery gadget.

Both tasks that I've added as subtasks are probably required to make this work well.
