Family history now more than ever a branch of Digital Humanities. How many projects have that kind of reach 10 million profiles.
The following announcement was written by the folks at WikiTree:
3 June 2015: This week the WikiTree community reached a major milestone: 10 million profiles on our shared family tree.
Since its founding in 2008, WikiTree has grown steadily but carefully. Although the community’s mission is to connect the entire human family on one tree — ultimately including billions of people — WikiTree prioritizes collaboration and accuracy.
Over 200,000 genealogists have added profiles to WikiTree. Many of them share ancestors. Rather than create duplicate ancestor profiles, they work together on the same profiles. When duplicates are created accidentally, they’re merged.
