      It seems that a genetic study has found that there is a strong relationship
      between kinship and fertility. In the study referenced in the article, one
      researcher calculated that "...the optimum degree of outbreeding (measured in
      terms of the number of children and grandchildren produced) lay somewhere
      between cousins of the third and fourth degree."



      There is also the matter of geographic propinquity - which I think is
      underestimated.
      Interesting though.
