Web site Dynastree’s surname map lays out how people with your last name are distributed across the US (along with Canada and Germany).
The search tool is a breeze to use. 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.
Dynastree’s surname map is just a small feature of the service, which is actually a webapp. The distribution map appears to be accurate from what I know of folks sharing my last name, and it’s a great tool to help you understand the movements of your people.
