First names word cloud: this time only direct ancestors. Created with Wordle.

First names word cloud: this time only direct ancestors. Created with Wordle.

Having collected all the data on family names, I’m keen create some useful inforgraphics. Looks like Thomas and Alexander are the clear favourites.

This time I’ve only included the first names of my direct ancestors and family members.

    • Thank you; I’ve been exploring infographics lately as an alternative to more traditional ways of presenting information. It’s great – combines my love of research with an equal love of visual communication and design.

      • I’m thinking my next project should be to map – literally – the birthplaces of all my ancestors. I have a feeling that my map will have a huge cluster in one very small area with only a few outliers – but I won’t know until I do it. 🙂
