Yes. And I suspect that some of the 1498 added some great well researched profiles. And the 100 badge really means more than 100 and less the 999. 999 can be a lot of hard work.
It would not be difficult to determine the number, the counts and individuals are all shown on the badge page and the entire history is there, just change the url and you can select any month you want. I thought about it, but I am in the middle of North and South Carolina in the late 1800's and that seems more interesting today.
