I want to use a GFCI outlet at the beginning of a circuit. My question is: How many 110 Volt outlets can be in each GFCI circuit ? Thanks in advance for the help.

As many as you want, unless the GFCI manufacturer says differently in the instructions (but most don't put a limit on it). Some advise a distance limit.

As John said, there is generally no limit.

However, you may want to think about what you are doing. My own preference is to not locate the GFCI too far from the outlets. "Too far" is a relative term and depends on the exact layout, but most people would prefer not to have to go all the way to the basement, for example, to reset a triped GFCI when they are up in a bedroom.
