You might want to consider transferring your Ancestry DNA results to Family Tree DNA and then joining the Gilliland DNA Project: https://www.familytreedna.com/groups/gilliland/about/results.  I am the administrator of that project.

I just wanted to say hi. I am Gregory Gail Gilliland, son of Garland Gail Gilliland. I just joined, obviously, right LOL.

I started researching my family back in the late 1990's and just in the past year took to using websites like ancestry. It has been an adventure to say the least.

I am going to be spending a lot of time going through the forum to see what is here, in the mean time if anyone notes they are a part of my family line, or if there is anything I can do to help you in general let me know, always happy to help others discover their own heritage.

My Gilliland line appears to have arrived through Maryland, and then settled in the following states over the years to come; Virginia, Kentucky, Missouri, and I was raised in Texarkana, TX.

To see my family tree on ancestry just search my name and it is called "Gilliland Family Tree A".

Y DNA seems to be the way to go if you have a direct line male that can test. We found our closest matches here.

I'm wondering about the dna project.My Gillilands are apparently now in Indiana by way of NC and PA. My nearest Gilliland ancestor is my great grandmother, and I know very little about them prior to coming to Union County Indiana in the early 1800's.My 5th Great Grandfather was not John Gilliand, married Susanah Harris.  Buried right beside him is John Gilleland 5th PA Regiment Rev War.  I know this was not his father, but think it may be an uncle or grandfather, but have never found any documents. Hoping the dna project might be helpful.  Ive done the ancestry dna and uploaded mine to gedmatch, but I really don't know how to make use of the resources.

Hi, I am looking for any Gilliland connections from North Carolina and western Tennessee. I have tested with Ancestry (n2shoebiz) and my brother with Ftdna Y111 (574159). I also have family trees in both locations. On Ftdna, we match extremely close to Gillilands with a connection to the Thomas Gilliland line (1830-1888) from SC... Sharon

I did the DNA test through Ancestry.com. Is there a way I can add that info to this Gilliland database? My maternal grandfather was John Isaac Gilliland. He was born and raised in SC, but his family was from Eastern TN (Cocke County, Newport, Cosby) area. My mother's maiden name is Johnny Sue Satterfield.  Thank you for your help!

I don't believe the Dr. Robert gilliland mentioned here is buried in Decatur County Indiana.  I think he is in Union or Fayette County. There is a John Gilleland 5th PA, Rev War in Decatur County buried in a small cemetery adjacent to John Gilliland Rockingham County N.C. War of 1812.  I have never been able to document the fathers of either, but i have seen documents that show Robert marrying a Helmick in Union County.  Also the 1830 census shows a John Gilliland in Decatur County with a male 80-90 years old.  I believe the old John died shortly after coming to Decatur County but i don't know their relationship.
