Description:

Are Charles Darwin and Jane Austin connected by blood? It's a good question, and this remarkable site from Stanford University has answers for the curious visitor. The Kindred Britain site presents a network of nearly 30,000 individuals connected through family relationships of blood, marriage, or affiliation. Visitors can use the Learn More area to first find out how to use the site. After this exploration, visitors can "connect the dots" by dragging the circles onto each other to learn about connections between individuals. There's also a color guide to the various tabs and circles here that is most helpful. The site also features a timeline that's a real pip and the Stories area has some nice, short historical essays on Frankenstein and "Centrality and Notability in Genealogy."
