Minakowski's Great Genealogy
for Science and Scientists
Minakowski's Great Genealogy is a valuable tool for scientists and scientific institutions.
It is being created in scientific regime by Marek Jerzy Minakowski PhD (bio in Wikipedia) and has been a source for many scientific works (peer-reviewed, published in scientific newspapers or books, see below for details).
It has two layers:
a) a public, genealogical database published at Wielcy.pl (and Sejm-Wielki.pl) with detailed data about 920,000 people, from wide elites of former Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth since 10th till 20th century—all of them form one, continuous family network (such that the distance between any two of them can be measured) - (fact sheet describing its content);
b) a relational database with all source data, hosted internally.
The whole editing is performed on (b) and once a day, the public dabase (a) is compiled from internal (b).
The access to public database (a) is standardized. It depends on the number of users. See below.
The access to private database (b) is discussed case-by-case. It can be for fee, but also can be given for co-authorship. We may also talk about other ways of co-operation (research grants, employment, incorporation, adding other countries or social groups, commercial cooperation etc. - sky is the limit).
