Ancestry.com Adds 10 Billionth Record
Posted by Diane

Subscription genealogy website Ancestry.com announced the addition of the site's 10 billionth record today.

The announcement pointed out that its collection, which has grown 150 percent in the last three years, "is larger than those of all other online family history sites combined." On average, the site has added 55 million records a month since the website went online 15 years ago.

The earliest digitized records are wills executed in London in 1507. The earliest record indexes date back to marriage licenses and probated wills in Dublin from 1270. The most popular collection remains the US census.

I guess it depends on how one defines 'records'.

I wonder If Ancestry can tell you if that 10 billion records includes or excludes all their online tree records...

Public Member Trees: 2,107,016,069
Private Member Trees: 527,923,893
Ancestry World Tree: 467,671,004
One World Tree: 120,668,705

TOTAL TREE RECORDS=3,223,279,671
Total Non-Tree Records=6,776,720,329

Hi, Andy,
I checked with Ancestry.com and they confirmed that the 10 billion figure does include member tree records. Thanks for your comment!
