"Day of the Dead" Graphic by Geni.com

I always find the graphics created by Geni.com to be interesting and informative.  Their latest celebrates the "Day of the Dead" holiday in many countries, and is at http://www.geni.com/blog/celebrating-day-of-the-dead-371011.html and I've posted it below:

If the graphic on my blog is too small to read, click here

From the graphic above,  I learned that Geni.com has 2,289,095 users in the United States, with a total of 46,872,699 profiles.   That comes out to be an average of 20.5 profiles per user.  What does that tell you?

It tells me that most users have a very small online tree at Geni.com.  It would be interesting to know what the median sized tree (i.e., 50% have more, 50% have less) was - my guess is that it is something like 10 to 12 profiles.  That is only logical, because people like me have 1,000 or more profiles in their tree (I have 21,089 the last time I checked). 

The www.Geni.com website says that there are almost 60 million profiles in their interconnected World Family Tree.

My thanks to Amanda at Geni.com for the link to the Day of the Dead graphic.
