Ancestry DNA — 4 million tested!

In case you haven’t seen the news on social media this week, here’s the big number from Ancestry DNA:

Ancestry has surpassed 4 million customers in our DNA database!

We’re proud to remain the largest consumer genetic testing company. Here are some fun facts about AncestryDNA:

  • From January to April 2017, AncestryDNA genotyped 1 million people. So, on average about two people took a DNA test every time there was a marriage in the United States.
  • With 4 million members, the AncestryDNA network would be the 2nd largest city in the United States based on population just after NYC.
  • The AncestryDNA database grew from 3 to 4 million in the last three months. That’s about as fast as babies are born in the United States.

Are you part of this 4 million? Several members of my family are with more to come!
