Surnames

I was flipping through a National Geographic that I picked up for my ailing Mother-in-law the other day and found this very cool article about surnames in the U.S.  It shows the most proliferate surnames in each region.   Whilst looking through the National Geographic website, I stumbled upon the same article with an interactive map.

Very cool.
