Geographical Distribution of Surnames

Here is an interesting web page where you can enter a last name and get a map of the United States showing how common the name is, state by state.

It only works if the surname is among the 50,000 most common in the United States. My last name (Gilleland), though relatively uncommon, still produces a map. But my mother's maiden name (Paiement) is too rare.
