Hello there, I am Eric Merryman in EDM310 attending the University of South Alabama, my class blog is I wanted to say that I like maps such of what you posted, it is neat to find out things, and I never would of thought Utah would be the place that the Irish would be. It also surprised me that the decedents of Germanic people would be all across America, very neat facts.
