Ancestry Maps from the 1990 census:
Which states have the highest percentage of people of Danish
? Who (perhaps) doesn't realize
that we almost all came here from somewhere else? Using the data provided on 1990 Census question 13, which asked respondents to identify the ancestry groups with which they identified most closely, the State of Minnesota provides us with these nifty Ancestry maps. More info here

"My name is John Johnson, I come from Wisconsin..."
Find out the historical distribution of
your last name throughout the U.S. (This will not, alas, be useful for Mr.
Johnson, or the Smiths, Joneses, Williamses, and Browns
of the world.) Brits
, we haven't forgotten you! Of course, if you're doing genealogical research, you can turn to specific resources, like the US Census
or the massive Familysearch
