About the Project

The Hill Name Study project serves as a collaborative platform to collect information on the Hill 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 Hill 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 Hills), by time period (18th Century Hills), or by topic (Hill DNA, Hill Occupations, Hill 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.

Also see the related surnames and surname variants.

Hi cousin, I have been working on my Pennsylvania Hill family for many years. My mother was the first to leave Pennsylvania since the family settled there in the 16-to 1700's. Mine are in the area from Carlisle west and Ohio. Mostly Westmoreland, Armstrong and Allegheny, with a few others thrown in. Where are your family from? Any brick Walls? My family always named the first son William so I have 9 William's in a row. The first I can prove was born in 1742, can't prove his father yet but he was born 1720 in Ireland. Get back to me, Irene

I finally found my Hill lines lol. I added her to project. I found few more things about her as sources. Per death records I was able to add her father. As of January 2021 I have not found a Mother although some have different women listed. I know her father lived in Pennsylvania but there several Phillip Hill in area not for sure which is Correct. Through Lots research I found there 2 Sarah Hill in Milton Pennsylvania where her and her husband are found. I have added her Father profile but I have brick wall. And only found few references of him. I have updated her and her husband profile as much as I can for now.




Hi I added this Hill Family to the Hill Name Study. It looks like they are unmanaged profile. I was looking for my Pennsylvania Hill Family thought he was it but wasn’t.
