The Al Busaid family ruled as Imam then as Sultans of Oman and Zanzibar.

Al Busaidi Family tree from a book published in 1920

Al Busaidi Family tree up to the year 1970

(note, these family trees are very small and not general, and there are a ton of other Al Busaidis who are not on there, most of the people on these trees are there only because they were Sultan.)

Rudolph Said-Reute wrote "Dates and references of the history of the Al Bu Said dynasty" that included a genealogical table, unfortunately its not out of copyright yet so it's not available for free.

Rudolph Said‐Ruete was the son of Emile Ruete

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emily_Ruete

Emile Ruete was an al Busaidi princess, the daughter of one of Sultan Said's circassian concubines, she converted to christianity and married Rudolph Heinrich Ruete and moved to Germany. She made a return visit Zanzibar and was treated cordially respect and friendliness despite being an apostate.

She wrote "Memoirs of an Arabian princess", whose copyright expired so two free copies which are available here-

http://books.google.com/books?id=V9cMAAAAIAAJ&printsec=frontcover&dq=emile+ruete&source=bl&ots=jDo-zAwViJ&sig=W-JrYQlXVvUkuigFux6nofwadw4&hl=en&sa=X&ei=Q0RKUJuhE4Ss0AHwuoDIDQ&ved=0CC0Q6AEwAA#v=onepage&q&f=false

She favored her brother Sultan Majid over her other brother Sultan Barghash, so the book portrays an unflattering image of Barghash, including claims that he hated europeans and accounts of him beating one of his concubines, while Majid is portrayed favorably.
