My Ancestor Surnames as a Word Cloud via Wordle

16Jul10

On one of my genealogy mailing lists, a fellow researcher mentioned creating a wordle surname cloud.

I modified my surname listing page that lists all of my direct ancestor surnames, and fed the output into the editor at wordle.net.

Here is the word cloud it created.

Visually appealing. Not sure if it has a practical use, but I like it.

Thanks to Brian McFadyen for the reminder.

UPDATE: I added a “send to wordle” option to my “ancestors’ surnames” page, so you can automatically create a surname cloud for the ancestor surnames of any person on my site.
