Mapping your Last Name




I have recently been interested in my family history and the origin of last name and where we came from. Seeing this will be my 5th Year as Mrs Campbell-Morrison, I thought it would be nice to see where E's family came from and his history seeing that it is just as much mine now.

Today I stumbled across a website which maps out your last name in the world. So naturally I typed in my last name and was so surprised at the facts. As you can see above there isn't many Campbell-Morrisons in the world and to think I am only 1 of 19 is crazy. 

From what I know from E's side is that  Campbell may have been a middle name and somehow got connected to the last name prior to E's grandfather birth. I can't seem to really find proof of actually name change or what it officially happened but all up to E's grandfathers name its the personas first name then Campbell as a second then Morrison officially as the last name. After E's Grandfather the hyphen started to appear Gordon Campbell-Morrison and so did the history of this new Last name start (I think).

After seeing my current last names map I wanted to see my maiden names mapping, and well not as easy - and mostly likely explains why I have so much difficulty finding information on my families history. There is just too many people with that last name and were all over the world. 

I found this so interesting that I want to continue looking at our history. Its so crazy to try and comprehend how much history has already been documented and here we are doing even more.
