Loads of kits

Ancestry announced a couple of interesting items today. They have by far the largest database with over 3 million DNA samples on file. They sold 1.4 million DNA kits in the 4th quarter of 2016. They sold over 390,000 more kits in the 4th quarter than they did in all of 2015.

  1. Lastly, over the Thanksgiving weekend sale, they sold 560,000 DNA kits. The vast majority of those have not even finished processing yet. That means folks on Ancestry are about to get 500,000 more matches. I’ll cover more about that in my next post.
