About World Vital Records
WorldVitalRecords.com maintains online databases with over 500 million names and records of family histories. The site's goal is to provide affordable and accessible genealogical histories across the web and beyond: some of its current partners include Everton Publishers, FamilySearch, Quintin Publications, and The Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation, Inc. The company also operates FamilyLink, a social network for genealogists and families looking to work on their family trees and connect with one another. WorldVitalRecords.com's key competitor is Ancestry.com, which is owned by The Generations Network, a company that operates a number of genealogy-focused businesses and was acquired by Spectrum Equity Investors in October 2007.
