Another suggestion for those of us who just might be looking in the wrong
*state* (who, me?): Somewhere in the Maps section at Cyndi's List is a
"Surname Distribution Map." You type in the surname you are seeking, and the
map shows which states have the most people with that surname. (This helped
me confirm, for example, that there are far more ZEPPs in MD than in PA.)
Then, you could use Switchboard as above, but narrow down your search to the
most likely state(s).

BTW, Paul, email me with any "target" WALL ancestors, as I'm constantly
turning up WALLs in my search for WALLINGs.
