Bloomberg.com has a speculative article quoting an unnamed source that Ancestry.com is looking for a buyer, possibly Google or Facebook.
Ancestry, with a market capitalization of $964.4M, would be an easier and more rational acquisition for Google ($186.0B) than Facebook ($55.3B). It's doubtful an acquisition by Brightsolid, even if financially viable, would be allowed by regulators.
