Two assumptions that many people make about genealogy and family history researchers are that they are old and they are female.
Let's take a look at the stats from this website for a time period and see what they show. I am assuming that this website has a representative set of demographics to others in the industry.
But look at Pages/Session and Average Session Duration - the numbers diminish as the visitors are younger. Are they not as interested (those who do visit) - or is their attention span less or are they just too busy?
What are your thoughts? Are you surprised at all? I know that there are efforts to get more "younger" folks interested in genealogy,
Hopefully that will happen before no one is able to read cursive writing, and under-stated challenge for the genealogy community in years to come.
