Findmypast.com Sets Up Shop In Venice
Findmypast.com, a British family history website, said today that it has launched--and has set up a new office in Venice, California, to run its U.S. operations. Findmypast runs an online, family history and genealogy site which provides genealogical records, in particular, a rich collection of British, Irish, and Australian records dating back to 1200. The firm said its goal is to become the "go-to" site for Americans of British and Irish ancestries. Findmypast.com is entering a competitive market here in the U.S., which includes such competitors as Ancestry.com and MyHeritage.com, as well as local family tree startup Geni.com, which is in West Hollywood. Findmypast.com did not say how big of a team it will be hiring in Venice.
