Maternal Surname Cloud

I really liked Alana's blog post on how she created a surname cloud, so I thought I'd try one out for myself!

First time around I made a guess at which surnames would have a greater weight than others. Then my OCD kicked in and I went to my ahnentafel report and actually counted how many times each surname popped up in my direct lines. I know, it's a disease.

So below are the results from Word It Out - this is from my maternal line and I went back 13 generations. This was actually a pretty good exercise to remind me of family lines that I don't pay as much attention to, but which have a significant presence.
