[R] kinship package example data

I've been looking at the kinship package which looks as though it
might be appropriate for my purposes.  What I can't find is any
reference to the data that is used in the example code.  A dataframe
called d10 with column names, upn, dadid, momid, sex and affect is
required.  One can get an idea of what sort of values should be in
most columns from the description in the pedigree function, but I
don't see anything to indicate what upn should look like.

My efforts to contact the package maintainer have been unsuccessful,
so this is a request to anyone who has used kinship to let me know if
there is a real dataframe called d10, and if not, what sort of
relationship does upn have to the dadid and momid?

Thank you.
