  1. I recently started a blog and am currently hunting through other genealogy blogs gathering ideas for mine. I do like this list and look forward to seeing your map ...

    I notice you have the surname Loveland on your list although with no geographical area listed adjacent. Would they be, by any chance, from Barnsley?

  2. Hi. Thanks for the comment. I think quite a few genealogy blogs have surname interests listed, it's certainly useful for other researchers, though it does take some updating!

    My Loveland surname was found in Surrey, but I don't know a lot about them yet, hence the lack of a location.
