We construct families of smooth, proper, algebraic curves in characteristic 0, of arbitrary genus g, together with g elements in the kernel of the tame symbol. We show that those elements are in general independent by a limit calculation of the regulator. Working over a number field, we show that in some of those families the elements are integral. We determine when those curves are hyperelliptic, finding, in particular, that over any number field we have nonhyperelliptic curves of all composite genera g with g independent integral elements in the kernel of the tame symbol. We also give families of elliptic curves over real quadratic fields with two independent integral elements.
