Surname Mapping

"Surname mapping is a useful technique for a surname DNA project. Many surnames have regional distribution patterns. Mapping the distribution of a surname at different points in time will often reveal the origin of the family name and will thus provide a narrower focus for further research and for recruitment efforts. Surname maps are generally created using information from censuses, electoral registers and telephone directories."
