Amy Gershkoff has seen the power of Ancestry.com first hand: In assembling their family tree, her relatives uncovered and reconnected with a long-lost branch of the family.

Now imagine accelerating the search-and-find power of Ancestry by combining its 80 million family trees, volumes of supporting historic records and 2.5 million consumer genomic samples in the company's San Francisco-based AncestryDNA data base.

"Ancestry's connection to people is deep and profound because they're going to the core of who they are," said Gershkoff, who will join Ancestry next month as its first chief data officer from online and mobile gaming company Zynga Inc.
