Surname origins maps historic surname distributions for England and Wales, Scotland, Ireland and The United States. Unlike most surname mapping sites it uses sub county/state units to create highly detailed distributions. Users submit their surname data which are then mapped for a modest fee.
The Geography of surnames web site is devoted to the study of English, Scottish and Irish surnames. Surnames will be examined from a geographic perspective, focusing on their distribution, patterns and origins.
The Linen Hall Library Postcard Collection contains an abundance of wonderful images which capture Ireland in bygone days and gives a sense of what life was like in remote villages and towns over one hundred years ago.
