Wordle Thy Ancestors

For my next Winter Genea Bloggers challenge, I played around with Wordle.  It’s a fun little application that allows you to fill in a box with text.  Then it creates a Wordle…a representation of your word list in living color.

I decided to do a Wordle based on my ancestor surnames.  This is not a complete list as the Azorean lines go back to royalty and into infinity (or at least until there are no records to find).  It represents my Azorean, Portuguese, Irish, English, Australian, French…and whatever else thrown in ancestry.
