...are plentiful. They number in the billions. And none of them are yours...

SALT LAKE CITY — In a surprise move, Lehi-based Ancestry.com made a double-pronged announcement Tuesday that longtime CEO Tim Sullivan is stepping down and the company will delay a much-anticipated public stock offering.

Sullivan will step down Oct. 1 and transition to chairman of the company's board of directors, the online family history network said in a news release.

Ancestry.com announced in June that its initial public offering was expected to come together before the end of the year.

Sullivan had served as CEO for more than a decade and helped oversee a surge in annual revenues from $140 million to an expected $1 billion in 2017, according to the news release.

Well done indexers, your tireless efforts have made some people very, very rich.

Ancestry.com has done very well. Remember Infobases? Apparently Ancestry has their roots way back there.
