I am thinking about pursuing a network analysis of the genealogist network on WeRelate.org, and I'm wondering if there is previous literature about genealogist networks in particular, or even just about the attributes and motivations of genealogists. Both Social Network Analysis and genealogy are new fields to me, academically, so I'm still fumbling in the dark.
Here are a few papers that I've found. Are there others that I am missing?
