2015 Statistics for www.EOGN.com

I must admit that I am smiling a bit after looking at the “end-of-year” report for this newsletter. I thought I would share a few statistics. These are for the Standard Edition newsletter’s web site only; these numbers do not include the Plus Edition newsletter at http://www.eogn.com/wp.

The web site at http://www.eogn.com was viewed about 2,700,000 times in 2015.

In 2015, there were 1,068 new articles published, growing the total archive of this newsletter to 1,940 articles, far more than any printed genealogy magazine.

People in 221 countries read the articles here. Most visitors came from the United States. Canada and the United Kingdom were not far behind.

The busiest day of the year was March 30th with 17,785 views.

The article that generated the most readers’ comments in 2015 was Ancestry to Retire Family Tree Maker Software with 193 comments (so far).


When you started this newsletter, did you in your wildest imagination think of such results? As a forever reader, I’m impressed, but not the least surprised. Just from the people from all over who leave replies, it is obvious that many countries are represented and just how much so many of those people enjoy and learn from your newsletter. My wish for you in 2016 is that it all continues as before, but I also wish that you would take a little more time to yourself to spend relaxing and with your lovely family. We appreciate your dedication, hard work and knowledge but we also respect your right to have a life of your own and some down time. I’m sure having weekends off is a good start but I really doubt that you actually take all 48 hours off!
Thanks Dick for all your hard work, dedication and care about for the Genealogical world. I doubt you will ever realize how much you work is appreciated.
Happy 2016 to you and your family.


Great job, as usual, Dick! Please keep up the good work!


Many thanks for your great newsletter. I live in the UK and find your articles and comments very useful in my work as family history tutor. You often prompt and guide me to new developments which I can then research and pass on. I also recommend learners and members of my local U3A family history groups to sign up for your newsletter themselves.
Keep up the good work.


Congratulations to you, Dick, and many thanks for a great contribution to genealogy. You do a great job and I look forward to reading your updates every day. Your success is well deserved.


…growing the total archive of this newsletter to 1,940 articles…
? Has to be more.


Thank you, Dick. Your newsletter covers the genealogy waterfront, and that’s a good thing.


Dick, Congratulations and Thank You. I look forward to always informative and/or interesting articles in your newsletter. But I’m glad you are taking the weekends off!
