This week's post as part of my participation in Amy Johnson Crow's 2018 version of the 52 Ancestors meme. Week 6. "Favorite Name".
I gave this a lot of thought. With well over 18,000 individuals in my data base, it was difficult. Seriously, I don't think I have a favorite. So, I, once more, went a bit of a different route. Headed over to the data base and looked at the file statistics. It really is a fascinating little report, well, maybe not so little.
However, anything that catches my attention and makes me review and or giggle at myself, that's all good stuff.
Here are my most popular surnames and given names. First the surnames. Only surprise, and probably should not be is that Smith is number 4.
Here are the most popular given names in my data base. Look at number 1. Really? I think I have some explaining to do, to me! HOW did that happen? I think I know. I think I need to review and see if I can change a few of those Mr. first names to, you know, oh, maybe, John?
Have you ever checked your data base for statistics?? You might be surprised.
