Saturday Night Fun Surname Frequency

It's Saturday Night - time for more Genealogy Fun!

Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to:

1) Go into your Genealogy Management Program (GMP; either software on your computer, or an online family tree) and figure out how to Count how many surnames you have in your family tree database.

2) Tell us which GMP you're using and how you did this task.

3) Tell us how many surnames are in your database and, if possible, which Surname has the most entries. If this excites you, tell us which surnames are in the top 5!

Well I did not find a list that would count surnames, but with just a few over 2000 names it is not hard to see the largest surnames in my Ancestral Quest database.
