[edit] Goal

The main goal of similar searching during import and adding new person to db is a checking for double, triple and more records..... So when some false similar found it is not very bad. But when similar not found - it is very bad.

[edit] Import order

Take a first not imported person .
while ( person not imported ) {
    if ( isset(person.father) and (person.father not imported) ) {
        person = person.father;
    if ( isset(person.mother) and (person.mother not imported) ) {
        person = person.mother;
    if ( person.father and/or person.mother ) {
        if ( exists not imported family(father,mother) ) {
             import family(father,mother);
        if ( (exists not imported child(father,mother)) and (child not equal to person) ) {
             import child(father,mother);
    import person;
    person = next;
