Scientific American has published an interesting article: Do living
people outnumber the dead? (Sept 2007) pp. 126.
Interesting for genealogists - it estimates the number of people that
have ever lived - as compared to the number living today. It puts in
perspective our task of documenting every person and putting them
correctly in the family tree.
