Library of Congress - Smith/Miller Interactive Family Tree

I'm not related to the Smith/Miller family. I stumbled across this site a few weeks ago while doing research at work on Elizabeth Smith Miller. The collection at the Library of Congress is the Miller NAWSA Suffrage Scrapbooks, 1897-1911 -- one of the features is an interactive family tree. Laid out in pedigree format, you can zoom in and out, move around, hover over people to get additional information or print the whole thing out on a page. I thought it was a useful addition to an archival collection that mentions family members, though I did find myself wishing for source information associated with the tree, particularly if referenced in other collections at LC.
