Welcome to the Giles County TNGenWeb site. The county is up for adoption, so if you are interested, please consult the Adopt-A-County page for more details. Our goal is to provide you with as many free genealogical resources for the county as we can. Additionally, we rely heavily on your contributions, so we hope you will be willing to share. Your documents, photos, treasures, etc. could end up being a gold mine for another.
Giles County was formed in 1809 and is named after William Branch Giles. It is located in the Middle region of the state of Tennessee and is bordered by Maury, Marshall, Lincoln, and Lawrence counties, TN and Limestone County, Alabama. The county name is pronounced like “Jiles.”
Please let us know how we can continue to make this site a great resource for your genealogy and family history research. To stay up-to-date with new additions, consider subscribing to the RSS feed, or signing up for new content alerts (see right sidebar). The best place to start is probably the RECORDS & DATA or SURNAMES pages.
The Giles County TNGenWeb’s first coordinator was Ms. Sherranlynn Kincaid Nichols. Since then, the site has been coordinated by David Worsham, Sarah Smith, Carole Hammett, and Paulette Carpenter. We thank them for their dedication to the TNGenWeb.
