I just read Dick Eastman article Surname Suggestion List. I couldn't wait to download the program and see what suggestions it had for Weatherwax. It didn't have all the variations that I have seen but at least it gave an indication that I should try Wiederwax.
If I had known that information when I first started to work on genealogy it would of save many hours of research. It would of been my first indication that it was derived from a German surname. I need to give some feed back to developer Matthew Combs and say thanks and give him the other spelling variations I have for the Weatherwax. I guess I need to put that on my to-do list.
Besides giving spelling suggestions the program will also let you do a Google search on the results. Now that is really handy. It appears to be a simple and useful tool for the genealogy community. I'm sure I will be giving it more spins in the future.
See ya tomorrow, for tomorrow is always another genealogy day!
