A very impressive page. Great charts. I think my project shares the same problem of multiple origins within M222, quite apart from the more than a dozen distinct origins of our surname(s). Interesting about the eight Fergusons who have 391=10. MacLysaght attributes one source of the name to Leitrim, which is between Cavan and Mayo and was Ui Briuin Breifne turf. Yet all the others are Northwest irish as well (with 391=11). Are there many other Fergusons who are not NWI?
