About the Project

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

I'd like to become a member of the Meredith surname research group. My maternal 2nd great grandmother was Elvira Merida. Merida-54.

My mtDNA is I1.

Her brother Elbert Merida is Merida-55.

Elvira and Elbert were orphans according to Greene County, Tennessee Court Records.

I'd like to become a member of the Meredith surname research group. I am a Meredith and have tried to research our ancestors for many years. My dad and his side of the family are from North Mississippi. Before moving to Mississippi, our ancestors lived Waynesboro, TN around 1780 - 1800's. They spent some time in Kentucky too. It's been hard to confirm a lot of information on the ancestors before that.

I have my DNA and my dad's (William Ralph Meredith, Jr. from Batesville, MS) DNA on Wikitree.

I appreciate the research being done about the Meredith ancestors.

Hi this page came up as a reference as I was working on inputting my family history. Specifically my grandmother Charlene Meredith who is J Manson Meredith and Lilian Inez (Himonubbe) Davis daughter. She is Robert Lee Meredith sister. The Meredith’s I’m referencing are from NM. Panhandle Tx and OK area. I’m new and learning how to navigate this site so please excuse my reaching out this way if not appropriate. Thank you Jessica

Hi Steph, added myself to the list as a member since I am a Meredith and research Merediths. (Strange that!). My particular interest is in connections to the Merediths of Abergavenny and their connection to the Gwatkins but I create profiles for Merediths as I come across them.
Welcome to the ONS site is under construction so ideas welcome send to myself or Steph and we will try to include them when editting

THe research pages section is for WikiTree space pages that are part of the study. Other resources should be listed in your resources section.The Merediths of Gloucestershire page is the only one that really belongs there right now, until other pages are possibly created by members of your study.
