Several People have contributed huge amounts of information to this family web site. Among those who have, and continue to, contribute these massive data sets for all of you to use, are: Tina Ellis, Dan Olds, and Sue Gill.

You may have to click on the "Reload" button on your web browser when viewing a page, or even "Shift Reload." These files are updated very often, and you may not see the new ones unless you empty your cache (which consists of old pages stored locally on your hard drive). Numerous people have run up against this one! Internet Explorer 5 is the worst I have ever experienced about this. Please Email (FCLARK@BIGFOOT.COM) me a summary of what you know about your line, where they lived, date limits you have set, and I will include your line on this web site. Raw records are welcome. I strongly suggest a mail forwarding Email link to yourself, like the bigfoot link that I use. Please provide updates. Please send any Gill records for posting, from any location or country.
There is a Rootsweb Gill mail list. Be aware, Rootsweb is now owned by a commercial company, and anything that that you submit will be "owned" by them. Just send an Email message to the list account, with one word in body, where you would normally write your Email, "subscribe." Because of increased SPAM, Rootsweb now requires you to subscribe in order to make a submission. The complete link to the page at Rootsweb is given here. To unsubscribe, send the same message, but with "unsubscribe" as the body of your Email.
Ceya Minder runs an excellent Gill Email discussion group. Ceya primarily limits her Gill discussion group to Gills of the Southeastern U.S.A., especially Georgia, Alabama, and Florida.

I dedicate this work to all those souls who have done, and are doing, work on these families, be they related to my lines or not. I also wish to add a very special thanks to the extensive prior work done by Eva Turner Clark (no relation), who published Gill Abstracts from Records in Southern States and Genealogical Notes in 1939 (Richard R. Smith, NY). My (xerox) copy of this book came from Alderman Library in the University of Virginia. If anyone knows the family of this person, it would be nice to get that book reprinted.
