Since 1985, when a bibliography concerning studies on sur- names and genetic structure appeared, the number of publications on this subject has increased a thousandfold. New topics and uses have been added, but large gaps in knowledge remain. Only studies on isonymy in cities of na- tion states for recent times are well covered, and most studies are on popula- tions that were selected because they are isolated and not because they are typical. This review, although not exhaustive, covers the literature published since 1985.
