Paul and Jensen Ancestors
Many, many cousins have contributed to the information which has
here. While it would be proper for me to credit each and every
individually, I am reluctant to do so for fear that my aging mind would
fail me in the crediting of many who have graciously participated over
the past 35 or more years. My heartfelt thanks goes to
all who have

It is interesting to see the distribution and
of a given surname across the United States. Some surnames are known to
be common -- but one might be surprised at just how frequently
particular surname being researched occurs. By using the link below,
can access a web site from which you can create a map of the United
indicating both the frequency and the distribution of a surname in
you are interested. The database includes the 1850 census, the 1880
the 1920 census, and data from telephone listings in 1990 - but the
interesting approach is to choose the option "All Years" and view an
map of all the data and thus view the expansion and changes in
of the surname across the United States. The surname map graphics are

in these pages was denied. It is, none-the-less, worth your time to
a look. You will have to use your browser "Back" button to return to
