Old Maps Great Britain Family Names Directory of Royal Genealogical Data At this site I have a database containing the genealogy of the British Royal family and those linked to it via blood or marriage relationships. It contains, in fact, the genealogy of almost every ruling house in the western world because of the intermarriage that took place between them at some time or another. There are in excess of 30,000 individuals from the earliest times to the present in the database. The date spread of the records is available for those interested, as well as statistics on the ten most popular monarchs , and the most prolific readers top 10. The data may be browsed in several different ways. A new (July 99) feature is a list of chronological implausibilities identified by an automatic scan of the data. For further details on sources see the bibliography and also User Contributed Data Files . You may also find the Answers to Frequestly Asked Questions useful.
