Hello Kate,

I don't know of any sites, but I can tell you that royal families in
many different cultures would "in-breed", to keep the blood-line pure.
It is believed by some that was the reason for insanity in so many royal
families. I guess if you start with a dirty gene pool, inbreeding will
just make it that much dirtier. But a gene pool higher on the
evolutionary scale- would create more subtle differences, like insanity.
:) I guess there are a lot of gene pools about that need a healthy
dose of chlorine. :)

Good luck in your search.

Come on now, everybody knows that Royalty is better than us common folk.

Actually, inbreeding has resulted in other genetic deformities in royalty
than insanity. Hemophilia (inability to clot the blood) has been one common
problem. And there are a couple of others that I think were passed on
through royal bloodlines that tended to lead to early deaths and/or lowered
immune systems.

Try searching under "inbreeding" and then try "genetic deformities."

But you're being a little weird.

Or look up family re-unions. Lots of these guys think they're the best place
to meet women :-)
