Did Mr. Newton/Einstein ever take on students?

    If they did, could we track them and see if they further made more students and those people made more students and etc.. (if somebody has a word for what i'm trying to say, please help me)

    There's a website that lets you track the genealogy of student-advisor relationship (some going back hundreds of years) for mathematics


    Einstein is on the site for example
