Well no it isn't as there was also a lot of emigaration during that time also. Now that was no doubt due to the famine but the drop in numbers is not solely down to people starving to death.

Yep, the common figure quoted is a million dead, a million emigrated. That map doesn't distinguish.

Class. My name has a high density in Ireland and then a smattering of occurrences in Europe. Only seen in USA, Canada, Argentina, Australia and NZ outside of Europe. Obviously just places where Irish people went.

Mine is virtually all UK + Anglophone former colonies - the top country is Aus (and yes I do have family there)

Interesting site /map. The FPM (whatever the fark that is - something per million?) for my name, country-wise, runs 1 Oz, 2 UK, 3 NZ, 4 Ireland and 5 US. The five top cities are all in the UK - England, to be more precise - whereas the five top regions are all in NZ. Who knew there were *******s in NZ?

Japan is a country that mixes the futuristic with the totally retrograde, primarily due to it's demographics.

Now that's really cool. Confirmed my suspicion regarding my name. Strongest in German part of Switzerland+western part of Austria, but then USA+Canada, then southern Germany. Many were late 19th century immigrants to North America, mainly Midwest, with some strong pockets in the farming belt like Kansas and Nebraska.

Cool site, got the Maori version of my surname spot on, and the English version of my surname seemed about right to.

My surname has only any strength at all in very rural parts of Mississippi and Georgia, but worst of all Auckland. I'm not proud

Was at a talk about the Famine where i'm from a while back and apparently very few people died of starvation but rather because they were malnourished they were extremely vunerable to disease and this caused outbreaks of disease to spread like wildfire.The authorities habit of crowding the people into workhouses made the problem worse.

Eh, no.

It has EVERYTHING to do with rivers, at least in the Russian case.

Look at a map of Russia. All the development took place either across the spine or along the rivers . The rivers & weather dictated where the major urban areas across that spine were located. Hence where Russian orthodoxy took hold. The area coloured "heathens" is a lazy-arsed way to classify territories largely unpopulated, or populated by smallish numbers of indigenous shamanistic (amongst others) tribes.

I take your point and understand about the river settlements but my point is that that is not what is indicated here.Look at China it has stripes aswell indicating more than one religion in that territory and it has nothing to do with rivers.It is just coincidental that the stripes are angled the same way as many rivers flowing in to the Artic sea.Take a look at all the stripes on the map,they are all at the same angle.
