FamilySearch by the numbers

I see numbers and various stats published pretty often and I think, wouldn't it be great to have all of them collected together in one place? I've decided this is the place! I'll add new numbers as I see them, leaving a historic record to show where we've come from. Feel free to leave a comment with newer numbers and the source of your information.

Thanks to Arlene H Eakle for posting these opening numbers on her blog.

  1. I seem to recall that there were over 400 million records in Record Search sometime in early 2008. The 30 million were just added.
