Kimberly (Curtis) McComb was adopted.
Adopted Father: Harris McComb
Adopted Mother: Debbie Sessions McComb
Agency: State of Alabama DHR
Date: 24 March 1977
Location: Montgomery, Alabama
Biological Father: Gerald Eddins
Biological Mother: Sandy Curtis Walker

Kimberly was born on January 1, 1977 at Lyster Army Hospital on Fort Rucker military base, Dale county, Alabama. She was immediately put up for adoption through the State of Alabama Montgomery office. Her biological mother is Sandra Curtis Walker and her biological father is Gerald Eddins [1]

Kimberly was adopted on March 24, 1977 by Beck Harris McComb and Deborah Ann Sessions McComb through the State of Alabama Department of Human Resources in Montgomery, Alabama. [1]

Adoption Research

In August of 2000 the state of Alabama opened adoption records for adult adoptees. [2] On the day that the records were opened I mailed in my form requesting my original birth certificate. Within 3-4 weeks I received a copy of my original birth certificate with my biological mother’s name and the name and location of the hospital where I was born. Using the location of my birth I determined which high school in Dale county, Alabama she would have attended. Using the age she was when I was born assisted me in determine a range of years that she would have attended high school. Using this information, I went to the Carroll High School web page and searched for alumni lists that contained names and email addresses. I then email several alumni asking them if they knew Sandra Curtis and how to contact her because I had sensitive personal business to discuss with her. After about a week I finally received a reply from someone that knew her. The only holdup was that he wouldn’t tell me anything, he was only willing to pass my information on to her, so I agreed to that. [1] I can’t remember how long it was after giving him my information that it was I heard from her for the first time, but I can remember exactly what I was doing when I heard from her. I was sitting at my desk at home, talking to my mom on the phone and her exact words were “be careful you’re going to end up in her lap without being prepared for it.” Right about that time I received an instant message from my biological mother and told my mom “I think I just ended up in her lap.” [1]

Hi Kimberly,

I sent you a message a week ago about the new-look Global Cemeteries Project but have not yet heard back from you. If you would like to continue in the project, please can you PM me your team(s) selections and your e-mail address for the Google group.

If I don’t hear back from you by this time next week I’ll assume you no longer wish to be in the project at this time.

Many thanks,

Susie :-)

Hi Kimberly,

We’ve made some exciting changes to the Global Cemeteries Project. The sub-projects have been merged into the Global Project to help with Leadership and to facilitate collaboration.

Some roles within the project have changed. From now on, there are Project Coordinators for each continent, and one for Welcome and Integration, plus Team Leaders for each individual Country etc.

Please let me know if you’d like to stay on in the new project, if you’d like to continue in an existing role, and which team(s) you’d like to be on. Please also give me your e-mail address so that I can get you added to the project’s Google Group.

Many thanks,

Hi Kimberly. Things are going fairly well with my contribution efforts. I am awaiting response from my request for edit privileges for my mother's profile (Grace Dordan Pipes). No response as of yet. I'm not aware of any way I can confirm that the request was successfully transmitted.

Hi Kimberly, I just discovered on family search that my great aunt Mary J. Mackenzie (McKenzie) was married to a Curtis, and had a daughter Helen G. Curtis b. abt 1909 in Indiana. They were living in Farmington, Ill. with my 2nd g-grandmother Mary Vincent Mackenzie when the 1910 census was taken. Mary J. later married a James Lord. There was another child named Robert but I'm not sure if his father was Curtis or Lord.
