I have been getting good cousin vibes from the Internet through Geni, the genealogy website. They keep making improvements in how it works. For instance, they have made photos more useful. If you identify a person in a group photo by centering a rectangle on their face, Geni will automatically make that small area into the profile photo for that person. When you see the tree view you see just the face.
One drawback is that you can only identify people in your "family" defined by you, but no more than 4th cousins. I want to suggest that the range of suggested identities be determined by the placement of the "thumbtack" that Geni uses to anchor a path to a particular relative in your tree.
So here is the photo I want to post at the Geni forum is this from my iGoogle Photo set:
