Family history research has exploded in the past few years as new online tools and applications have been developed worldwide and made available to the public. Armies of volunteers have helped digitize and index more than 3 billion names using information from census data to immigrant ship manifests and birth and death certificates to make them currently searchable on any home computer.

Information released by Family Search.org, a top U.S. family history research site, notes that it has taken 100 years to make those records available, and at that rate, it would take another 300 years to digitize and index an additional 5.3 billion names.
