That's fantastic!!  How do you find that number within Wikitree?

Go to the main home page, the blurb after the four bullet points.
Thank you S Stevenson.  Isn't is strange how you see something all the time, but don't read everything on the page?  I hate to admit it, but I've been guilty of that a few times.

So that means we needed less than a year to build 3 million new profiles as the 16 million G2G post is from 23 Dec 2017 https://www.wikitree.com/g2g/527204/happy-christmas-chris-wikitree-16-000-000-advent-is-here

Well done to all of us!

Am I the only one who worked furiously yesterday entering profiles? I was amazed at the speed with which profiles were entered! I think it was in the neighborhood of 1,000 per hour. Now I'll have to see if that is ordinary or was the community making a big push.

I saw the 19 million coming, and felt excited and enthusiastic, so contributed with my part of a big push--but it seems WikiTree is now picking up steam, and regularly adding profiles at a good clip, and hopefully with consistently good quality, too.

Uhhh, I worked on just one already existing profile all day yesterday with only two new profiles added. sad

That's ok, Pip.  I'm sure you did your fair share along the way to get to 19,000,000. Wow, what a big number!!

WOW! Look at the number of genealogist who joined up in the past year. 150,000+!  That’s quite an accomplishment, too!
Good info.  Looks like our current rate is about 8,000 profiles added per day.  I'm personally hitting about 30 per day, about 0.4% of all daily created profiles, ha!  

Looks like from a rate of change standpoint, we've been about steady at 8,000 profiles a day since May 2017.  Should be around 35 million in 5 years.
