See How Your Surname is Spread Across the World

Greetings Readers!

I came across a link to a really cool site.  Have you ever wondered where your surname (last name) came from?  Have you wondered were you are most likely to run into people with the same surname, potentially distant relatives?  This site will tell you all of that and more!

Public Profiler will tell you a good bit of information about your name as well as give you a map and statistics on where you can find people with the same surname as yourself or somebody you know.  If you are a genealogy person, you might find this helpful for getting clues about where you might be able to find long lost relatives.  Give it a try and feel free to share your results in the comments!  F.Y.I. you will need javascript enabled and have Adobe Flash 9 installed.

More to come!
