Today's Follow Friday is quick and fun: the Great Britain Family Names Profiling Web site at publicprofiles.org. Surname mapping is pretty common now, but I think they do a nice job here. You can search for 1881 or 1998 and by full or partial name. Even my unusual Mutch Scottish name is in their database and very accurately concentrated in Aberdeenshire.
The Web site has this About section:
Welcome to the Great Britain Family Names Profiling website which presents the findings of a project based at University College London (UCL) that is investigating the distribution of surnames in Great Britain, both current and historic. It allows users to search the databases that we have created, and to trace the geography and history of their family names. On each page of the website, you will find a Help link on the top-right corner which We hope will answer any questions you might have.Have some fun and visit http://gbnames.publicprofiler.org/
