How do I choose what bloodlines are acceptable?

We're looking to breed our girls - how do the the bloodlines work, i.e. what's acceptable and what's not? Is there somewhere i can read about it? (i'm sure it must have been dealt with a billion times already!)

Hi Caroline,
in my opinion (and i stress that bit!) yo do not want to mate your gilt with a boar of the same bloodline as their father. Also check that the boars mother is not the same bloodline as your gilt.
the bloodline is in the name of the pig.
boars are
Tutaki
Andrew
Te Whangi
Ru
girls are
Jenny
Sally
Trish
Kereopa
Awakino
Rebecca Gina
