As some members may have roots in the Ole Country, type in your surname and see if there is a cluster of names in one or more regions. Did mine, and although my surname is Cornish, there are clusters in SW Scotland, Lake District, Gloucestershire and Liverpool. http://named.publicprofiler.org Also, scroll down to World names. There some of my tribe in Nebraska (new to me). Some years ago, I found a NYC FBI agent had the same surname. There are about up to thirty in South Africa, but it seems the survey hasn't covered colonials.
