We are thrilled to announce this milestone. Thank you to everyone at the Digital Archives, and the volunteers who made this possible!

On the morning of November 30, the Digital Archives sat at 199,980,098 records, when over 3 million records were entered into the queue for processing. By noon that day, it was official.

Congratulations to Gordon Russ of Lacey, Washington, for winning the 200 million records contest. His guess was the closest to the exact date and he won himself an Ancestry DNA kit.
