The year in content: Best of 2015
December 2015 Update
700 Million Reasons to Love 2015
We have a saying here at Ancestry: Content is king.
Ancestry has 30,000+ databases and more than 16 billion records available already, but we all know what we want—we want more.
2015 has been a good year for more. The
U.S. Probates Collection
was our most anticipated U.S. records launch since the 1940 census, with wills and probate files from all 50 states.
We made huge additions to two international record sets that are also important to many Americans’ research with 67 million
new German records
and 200 million
civil registrations from Mexico.
And that’s just for starters. You’ll find 150 years of
