Names in the Clouds
Here’s a fun picture from my genealogy blog. I just love word clouds. Word clouds in shapes – even better!
Have you ever seen a tree in the clouds? Or a cloud of names in a tree?
A friend posted a link to a list of the most popular Hungarian surnames (2006). In the top spot is Nagy, the ‘Smiths’ of Hungary. Although, to be accurate,while Smith is the most common English language surname in Hungarian it translates to Kovács, which ranks #2 in Hungarian popularity.
In our direct ancestry line these surnames were ranked in the top 100;
Nagy #1 Tóth #3 Kis #7 Mólnar #8
This tree word-cloud shows all the known surnames in our direct line.
And that’s the Big (Nagy) and Small (Kis) of it.

I see a little silhouetto of a Bison . . .
Pronghorn antelope blending in with the pale dry landscape.
Big wide open vistas.
Purple mountain majesties rising in the distance.
Forests of windmills on the ridge.
Miles and miles of miles and miles.
And the sillouette of a black bison high on a hill at the Colorado border.
Welcome to Wyoming.
