Two—no, make that three—genealogy organizations have reached milestones this week:

  • WikiTree, a genealogy community with a goal to build a free worldwide family tree, now has 5 million ancestor profiles. The site’s founders say its “slow-growth” approach—encouraging the careful addition of profiles over “bulk” uploads—makes this milestone an important one.

You can hear from WikiTree founder Chris Whitten in the January 2013 Family Tree Magazine Podcast, hosted by Lisa Louise Cooke.
