The Gill family of Hackfall house.
The following information was sent by Chrisie Gill, Florida USA.
My name is Chrisie Gill and I live in the US. Currently I am contacting as many people as
possible regarding the Gill Ancestry.com Genealogy project.
I wish to bring to the attention of Gill families and others the information in the paragraph below to help inform
them about the project.
We are encouraging any and all men of the surname Gill, McGill, Gilliam etc… to participate in the Ancestry.com DNA genealogy project.
This cheek swab Paternal DNA test will help link Paternal famly lines across the miles. We especially encourage those Gills that may have
the trait of having a white streak(s) in their hair since birth or teen years (often occurring on the right front quarter of the head), as well as the trait of a cowlick.
I do not have any connection to Ancestry.com other than I am a member who happens to have gotten my family to complete the test and have
already linked very closely with another family because of it. We are trying to trace our families oversees and so far no luck.
With the DNA testing, it may just give us a link to trace our families from the opposite end, since we are at a brick wall as far as their immigration to the U.S.
Thank you for your time,
