How long was Project Giza in operation before the Stargate was successfully activated? I remember Catherine saying something about fifteen years, but I can't tract down a source for that...

The best resource I know for info like this is Arduinna's Stargate Handbook. It's incomplete, since it wasn't updated for the last few seasons, but everything there is marvelously detailed, documented, and accurate. You can find what you're looking for on the Timeline: 1900-1994 page.

I popped in to answer the question then saw this; I hope you don't mind if I explain my reasoning for the ages.

Jack specifically says he's 40 years old in 1997 (during "Brief Candle"), which I take to mean he was born in 1957; and Daniel says he was 4 years old in 1969 (during "1969"), which I take to mean that he was born in 1965. (I use the same method to determine Teal'c's birth year as 1899 or 1900, when he says he's 101 in "The Light". Sam never gave her age, so I never listed a birth year for her.)

I know not everyone agrees with me, but I take spoken canon over prop canon every time.

Of course there's some wiggle room into the previous year for a birth year based on a stated age, but it's simpler to go with the most obvious correlation year when it comes to creating a site (and timeline) like mine.

So that's why they're listed like that. :)
