Ancestry.com recently expanded the Salt Lake City facilities of their professional research subsidiary, ProGenealogists. They held a ribbon cutting ceremony at the now 22,000 square foot facility on 12 May 2016. (See a short video clip of the ribbon clipping.) Ancestry ProGenealogists employs 90 people worldwide, including San Francisco, Dublin, and London. They plan on hiring another ten this year.
Ancestry bought ProGenealogists in 2010. (See “Ancestry.com Acquires Genealogy Research Firm.”) Ancestry had been spending so much engaging them for researching the Who Do You Think You Are television series, it made sense to acquire the company outright. Under Ancestry’s ownership business has grown tremendously.
