Just enter your last name, hit Search, and Dynastree returns a very simple “heatmap” displaying the distribution of your last name across the United States. The map defaults to a view of your surname’s absolute distribution, but you can toggle the map to show relative distribution and get a better idea of the per-capita distribution as well.
