The surnames on this word cloud are the branches and twigs of the maternal side of my family tree.
My mother was Isabel Dawn EVERINGHAM. Through her, my direct maternal line traces back to Matthew James Everingham (1769-1817), a convict who arrived in Australia on the First Fleet.
I created this word cloud by giving the EVERINGHAM surname the greatest weight and then decreasing the weighting of names back through the generations, All of these families have their roots in the counties featured on this link.
