Wordle Family History Word Cloud

Create your own Family History Word Cloud with Wordle, a toy for generating “word clouds” from text that you provide. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text. You can tweak your clouds with different fonts, layouts, and color schemes. The images you create with Wordle are yours to use however you like. You can print them out, or save them to the Wordle gallery to share with your friends.
I used PAF to print a list of Family Names to a text file and used Search / Replace to remove words that were not family names. The above is just one example of many different designs you can create. Have FUN!
