Saturday Night Genealogy Fun — Your Genealogy Database Statistics

Hey genea-folks, it’s Saturday Night again,  time for more Genealogy Fun!
Your mission this week, should you decide to accept it, is to:

1)  If you have your family tree research in a Genealogy Management Program (GMP), whether a computer software program or an online family tree, figure out how to find how many persons, places, sources, etc. are in your database (hint:  the Help button is your friend!)

2)  Tell us which GMP you use, and how many persons, places, sources, etc. are in your database(s) today in a blog post of your own, in a comment to this blog post, or in a Facebook status or Google+ stream comment.

Here’s mine:

I use Family Tree Maker 2017 and Ancestry dot com to manage my genealogy information.  To determine the following information in FTM, while in the “Plan” section, I click “More”.
On Ancestry, I click the “Tree Overview” while my tree is active/on screen.
The information gathered from both says my current database has:

*  People: 21,074

*  Marriages: 6,120
*  Surnames: 3,794
*  Events/Facts: 79,439
*  Places: 6,693
*  Sources: 7724
*  Citations: 13,421
*  Multimedia items: 2,375
