Ancestry.com continues to dominate the genealogy industry. With the purchase of Find A Grave, Ancestry.com now directly controls 11 of the top 50 genealogy websites, as shown in the table below.
Ancestry.com continues to expand by organic growth and acquisition. In addition to Find A Grave, examples of recent purchases in the last two years include Fold3.com and Archives.com. Both website were independent prior to being purchased by Ancestry.com.
Sometimes Ancestry.com incorporates independent corporate websites into their main website. Rootsweb is an example that at one time was run as a separate website. It was folded into the Ancestry.com website about two years ago.
