Saturday Night Genealogy Fun - Surname Distributions!
Hey, genealogy fans - it's Saturday Night, and time for some Genealogy Fun!
Your mission, should you decide to accept it (cue the Mission Impossible music...), is:
1) Find out the geographical distribution of your surname - in the world, in your state or province, in your county or parish. I suggest that you use the Public Profiler site at http://www.publicprofiler.org/worldnames/, which seems to work quickly and easily. However, you cannot capture the image as a photo file - you have to capture the screen shot, save it and edit it.

The activity was an EYE OPENER for me. My first reaction to the data was "This does not seem correct" BUT under further evaluation ---- I have decided this may be an area (CANADA) for me to explore---that I had never explored before.
