UK surname distribution - new website

Postby JaneyH » Mon Feb 29, 2016 10:45 pm

I came across this research website via Twitter earlier - http://oobrien.com/2016/02/named/

I've only input a few of the surnames from my tree so far, but the results are very interesting. Some names in my tree are still centred on the same areas they were 150+ years ago, while others have changed somewhat over the years. Do bear in mind that it's based on current distributions, not historical ones. Before you jump to comment on the underlying methodology, please read the narrative.
