Press Release

October 2, 2013

Provo — Ancestry.com LLC has acquired Find A Grave, Inc., an online cemetery database. Find A Grave has more than 100 million memorials and 75 million photos.

For 18 years it has been a resource for genealogists, history buffs and cemetery preservationists. Find A Grave will become a wholly owned subsidiary of Ancestry.com, and will continue to be managed by its founder, Jim Tipton.

"Find A Grave is an amazing phenomenon supported by a passionate and engaged community of volunteers around the world," said Tim Sullivan, CEO of Ancestry.com. "We will maintain Find A Grave as a free website, will retain its existing policies and mode of operation, and look forward to working with Jim Tipton and the entire Find A Grave team."

Ancestry.com plans to bolster the resources dedicated to Find A Grave to launch a new mobile app, improve customer support, introduce an enhanced edit system for submitting updates to memorials, foreign-language support and other site improvements.

"Ancestry.com has been a long-time supporter of Find A Grave,” Tipton said. "Burial information is a wonderful source for people researching their family history and I look forward to working with Ancestry.com to help continue our growth and accelerate the pace of improvements." The terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
