A while ago Spatial-Literacy.org
came out with a mapping tool
that allowed users to search for the prevalance of people with a particular surname in the U. K. Other, similar services are available for a number of other countries, including Germany
, the Netherlands
and the United States
. Each country is broken down differently with areas of differing size and prevalance of families names is not consistently represented from one country ot the next.
