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!
