Updated September 2005

Further update to come

The Strawbs can't be said to have had a quiet history, which makes for an interesting, if a tad unwieldy, family tree. You can view the entire tree, or, for easier viewing on smaller monitors, in four smaller parts. Either way, make your window as large as possible for best results.
