Kindred Britain is a Stanford Libraries-based project in digital humanities. In “Small Town Noir, and Four Other Astonishing Digital History Sites We Loved in 2013” (The Vault, the history blog of Slate), Rebecca Onion stated: “The Kindred Britain project takes records of 30,000 notable people of British descent, living across 1,500 years of history, and lets you visualize how they’re related—by blood, by shared historical time, or by geography.

You can search pairs you think of yourself, or explore some suggested connections (George Washington and George III; Charles I and Oliver Cromwell). This is the kind of historical project that could only be executed digitally, and it’s gorgeous.”
