My name is Amy Gilpin. My connection to the Gilpin name is through my husband's family. As a genealogist and family historian, it only seemed natural to put all of the research I've compiled over the years into a single project.


What is a One Name Study?

So, what exactly is a One Name Study all about? Here is the definition from the Guild of One-Name Studies:

A One Name Study is a project that researches all occurrences of a surname rathar than a single ancestor (pedigree) or the descendants of one person or couple (descendancy)

You can check out the Wikipedia entry for One Name Studies [HERE]

Project Goals

  • To collect data on all occurrances of the Gilpin surname around the world. Please don't let that frighten you! I'll explain in more detail.
  • To compile that data into one place (here, on WikiTree) for use by WikiTree users, researchers, and other interested individuals.
  • To analyze the data collected.
  • For study purposes
  • To improve profiles of individuals on WikiTree. A study done on WikiTree is a little different than a study done elsewhere because the [[[Special:Honor_Code||Honor Code]]] is an integral part of the study.

Project Focus

  • Geographic distribution of the Gilpin name
  • Genealogical lineage reconstruction
  • Integrate DNA results into the research when it is provided
  • Create a Study Results document each year showing what the research data has resulted in.
