WikiTree About to Reach 500,000 Profiles

Oct. 18, 2010, WikiTree.com

WikiTree announced today that the website is about to reach 500,000
profiles. WikiTree has recently experienced explosive growth. With
497,732 profiles for people, places, and family heirlooms as of this
morning, the site is expected to cross over to 500,000 profiles by
Friday. Who will create profile number 500,000?

Access to each individual profile is determined by the user who
created it. WikiTree's unique Trusted List system gives the user the
power to protect sensitive information while still collaborating on a
worldwide family tree. Try WikiTree today - you could be creating
profile number 500,000!

About WikiTree: WikiTree's mission is to create a rich worldwide
family tree resource by striking the perfect balance between
collaboration and privacy. It gives families a free and easy way to
privately share information and organize their facts, memories, and
photos. At the same time, it enables distant relatives and strangers
to grow a worldwide family tree and create a valuable resource for
future historians. WikiTree was started in 2008 by Chris Whitten, the
creator of WikiAnswers - one of the top 50 websites in the US. Content
on WikiTree is owned and edited by its contributors. Join the free
