I see this morning that WikiTree has close to 19 million Wikitree profiles; currently the WikiTree main page states that we have 18,994,553 profiles (4,716,728 with DNA test connections) edited by 576,061 genealogists from around the world.

I expect we will likely reach 19 million profiles today, 3 Dec 2018, and this definitely warrants some celebration!  

Special thanks to the entire WikiTree administration and community for continuing to make WikiTree so wonderful in so many ways!

I'd still like to know how many profiles we would have if all the duplicate profiles were properly merged.

Unsourced?
You win. 1.1 million, and this doesn’t cover nearly all of them.
Ah but how many are duplicates? Hmmmmmm....?
Just one, you and Kris Fearialio.

It really is epic.  We will see the growth rate increase at an exponential rate over the next few years.

Seriously, I am stunned by how many users join every day.  Every time I look, not only has the number of profiles on Wikitree grown, but so has the number of users!
