Where You've Been - or Where They've Been

I ran across this fun little site that will show you where you've been (or haven't been, in my case).   I thought it would be fun to make a map to add to my genealogy websites for each branch of the family.  For instance, my direct-line Graves ancestors settled in the areas marked on the map in red -

States that my Graves ancestors called home

The map is intended to show what states you've visited, and calculates the percentage of the US (or other countries) that you've seen, and incorporates that data into the text below the map; however, with a little html tweaking, which is easily done with the new Blogger setup, I changed the text to relate the map to my Graves family.

Ahh... something else fun to do besides the laundry...
