GILPIN Family researchers have been gathering information and compiling their genealogies diligently for years. You may be among the few who are able to trace your earliest ancestor back to England, or Ireland. Or, like most you may be searching to find that illusive, missing link to the past.
As a GILPIN Family researcher you have probably reached a point where you cannot identify any earlier ancestors. You may have documented multiple generations, but, at some point the leads dwindle and the trail grows cold. You have reached the preverbal "brick wall." We know that more documentary evidence remains to be discovered however traditional genealogical research will most likely never find all the connections between the various GILPIN Family groups. Until recently there was little hope of extending a cold chart, however, genealogical DNA testing may provide the answers you are seeking.
So, whether you have a complete family history leading back to the GILPIN Family in England or you are just starting to chart your ancestors, we hope you will consider joining us.
