Ancestry.com Reaches Two Million Subscriber Mark
Ancestry.com (Nasdaq: ACOM), the world's largest online family history resource, has added its two-millionth active current subscriber. The milestone recently was reached when Yvonne Ocheltree, of Collierville, Tenn., signed up to solve a long-standing family mystery about the secret identity of her maternal great-grandfather. With two million active paid subscribers, Ancestry.com, which launched in 1996, is one of the world's most popular paid-subscription resources.
To mark the achievement, Ancestry.com has given Ms. Ocheltree a complimentary lifetime subscription to continue her research in a family history archive that now includes more than 10 billion historic records and images from more than 40 countries, dating back to 1270 A.D.
