About the Project

The Giles Name Study project serves as a collaborative platform to collect information on the Giles name. The hope is that other researchers like you will join the study to help make it a valuable reference point for other genealogists who are researching or have an interest in the Giles name.

As a One Name Study, this project is not limited to persons who are related biologically. Individual studies can be used to branch out the research into specific methods and areas of interest, such as geographically (England Giles), by time period (18th Century Giles), or by topic (Giles DNA, Giles Occupations, Giles Statistics). These studies may also include a number of family branches which have no immediate link with each other. Some researchers may even be motivated to go beyond the profile identification and research stage to compile fully sourced, single-family histories of some of the families they discover through this name study project.

My husband, Robert Giles, would like to join your study. We believe his direct ancestor is Jeremiah Giles born 11/8/1731 and died 12/10/1802 in Thanington. Bob has completed both Ancestry DNA and Familytree DNA which resulted in the predicted Y-DNA haplogroup I-M253.
