"An estimated 10 per cent of all internet users visit a family history website every three weeks, and with 25,000 amateur UK-based genealogists currently working on ‘virtually’ digging up their relatives, heritage hunting has even superseded gardening as the UK’s most popular hobby."

Those are facts included, unsourced, in the article "Hunting Down the Dead" in the Cyprus Mail, www.cyprus-mail.com/features/hunting-down-dead/20100103
