Elijah, this is what Pajek was designed for. Though I suspect others on this list could give you better references, try:  See http://vlado.fmf.uni-lj.si/pub/networks/doc/seminar/Geneo04.pdf

The other area where you can find lots of work (but it is *technical* and uses a rather different vocabulary, even if the graph theory is the same) is phylogenetic systematics. A genealogy, like a cladogram is simply a rooted tree and a tree is simply a graph without cycles. Here's a link to a book on phylogenetic systematics by Wiley and Lieberman

Cheers,
Jamie
