A deeper understanding of your heritage and family history sheds light on who you are and can strengthen your identity and sense of belonging. That’s why Ancestry combines billions of rich historical records, millions of family trees and samples from millions of people in the AncestryDNA network to help you discover your unique place in history and gain meaningful insights that can impact your future.

Ancestry.com LLC is a privately held online company based in Lehi, Utah. The largest for-profit genealogy company in the world, it operates a network of genealogical, historical records, and related genetic genealogy websites.

In 1990, Paul Brent Allen and Dan Taggart, two Brigham Young University graduates, founded Infobases and began offering Latter-day Saints (LDS) publications on floppy disks.  Infobases’ first products were floppy disks and compact disks sold from the back seat of the founders’ car.  Ancestry officially went online with the launch of Ancestry.com in 1996. In 1997, the website offers history information on CD-Rom to help people grow their family trees.

Over the past two decades, Ancestry has invested over $300 million to build the largest, most distinguished collection of family history records, and the company is continuing to invest in new content collections globally. The firm also remains committed to creating the best products and services in genomics by developing tools that help customers make discoveries more easily and by using the latest science to help them gain valuable insights about their origins.
