    Perhaps time to revisit your My Ancestors page - you must surely have discovered some new branches in the past few years? The new GRO birth indexes make it so much easier to track female relatives after 1837.

    Hi Everyone!

    Here's a weekly update on how well people have been doing over at LostCousins.
    • 32 new members joined the LostCousins site
    • 2,554 new entries have been added and
    • -237 relatives have been matched.
    A very steady set of numbers this week.

    Peter do you know how many matches you cleared from that test account? I can then update the entries.

    New Members mean New Entries, and New Entries mean New Matches. Everyone wins.

    Good Luck Everyone!

    Hi Everyone!

    Here's a weekly update on how well people have been doing over at LostCousins.
    • 57 new members joined the LostCousins site
    • 13,061 new entries have been added and
    • 78 relatives have been matched.

    Always good to see New Members joining. Lots of new entries so good work by the members. Surprising low number of matches, don't know if someone has closed an account but would have expected matches to be a lot higher.

    New Members mean New Entries, and New Entries mean New Matches. Everyone wins.

    Good Luck Everyone!

    Well over half of the entries were from the US 1940 census - which is so new that there might not have been any matches at all. Fewer than 10% of the matches were from the 1881 Census, which produces 90% of all matches.

    It's good that we're expanding into the US Censuses, it should please some members.

    Hi Everyone!

    Here's a weekly update on how well people have been doing over at LostCousins.
    • 60 new members joined the LostCousins site
    • 1,312 new entries have been added and
    • 92 relatives have been matched.
    Always good to see New Members joining. All numbers up this week apart from New Entries. Ratio of new entries to matches was 14.26, so roughly on average every 14th person added made a new match.

    New Members mean New Entries, and New Entries mean New Matches. Everyone wins.

    Good Luck Everyone!

    • 78 new members joined the LostCousins site
    • 5,799 new entries have been added and
    • 82 relatives have been matched.
    New Members and Relatives added up this week. But again a surprisingly small number of relatives matched. Maybe another batch of US relatives have been added?

    Hi Katie, Was just seeing if anyone actually read the posts :).

    Profuse apologies. Prepared the numbers earlier, rushed out, came back and then just posted without copying the graph. Please find the graph here:
