Where Do FamilyTreeCircles Visitors Come From?

A lot of people ask me questions like...

"I'm from the UK, is FamilyTreeCircles a U.S. site?"
"I see a lot of talk from people in Australia. Do any Americans use FamilyTreeCircles?"

And the list goes on and on...

Here's a breakdown of the top visitors by country in the 2011 calendar year, and a graph of the top several.

The United States 45.2%
Australia 16.5%
The United Kingdom 13%
New Zealand 11.2%
Canada 6.2%
Ireland 1.4%
South Africa 1.1%
India 0.6%
Germany 0.4%
The Philippines 0.4%
France 0.3%
The Netherlands 0.3%

Thanks Scott.

I have been meaning to ask you that question for a long time.

You're the salt of the earth Scott. Providing the Family Trees circle website is a terrific service to those working on family histories. It's great to see the support that comes after a plea from novices or even seasoned genealogists that have hit a brick wall. Unfortunately the families about which I've started journals haven't been involved yet but they might eventually be drawn into the circle. Your offer of a blog will give me the opportunity to provide information that does not come from BIRTHS, DEATHS and MARRIAGES, such as R.L.Youngson of Dromana doing a Gilpin.
Thanks Scott.

Thanks, exactly what I wanted to ask, as I had assumed at first that this was an australian site. I was also wondering if this site is relatively new as I hadn't heard of it before until I stumbled upon it recently, despite a decade of experience in online genealogy, good site though and I'm enjoying exploring it to find out more about it.

Cannot believe there is less than 2 per cent from Ireland as researching Family History
very strong over here.

How about an update on where visitors to FTC come from Scott.

I had to bring a cut lunch and a six pack with me to come down this far to comment and hope you can delete the deactivated ones for ever.

You can laugh if you wish, but now I have no tucker and the six pack has gone and it's a long climb to the top again.


It is a long way down here, isn't it.

I'll see what I can do to get a current look at the breakdown of visitors.

Scott may I add my sincere thanks for a brilliant site, while my family research goes on ☺ its truly amazing when you find another gem of information. Thank you 👍

Thread in need of a tidy up please lots above have been deactivated .

done :)

Considering the population of Australia at 23.14 million that's a very good representation. But our cuzzies across the ditch in New Zealand with only 4.5 million have blitzed us.

of course ;)

Thank you Scott :)

You ain't seen nothing yet, Janilye...
