Notes to visitors

If you ended up here from a

  1. profile I manage, let's talk about people!
  2. Greeter or Messenger comment/email, Welcome to WikiTree again! *grin*
  3. Thank You notice, it may be because you explained a change you made to a profile. I love seeing those!

I started gathering names, dates, and places around 1982 as a way to deal with the grief of a child's death. "Serious" genealogy research began in the early 1990s when the internet and computers introduced me to research partners who taught better habits and shared resources. A ten year break from 2005-2015 was full of other fun things but I found that missed the joys and challenges of research.

I came back to genealogy only to discover that two of my mentors / research collaborators had died. One's research is in the possession of an interested but non-active descendant and not accessible; the whereabouts of the other's research is unknown. I needed a place to share, collaborate, learn, and assure that my research would never suffer such a fate. I went looking and found WikiTree.

When I joined and uploaded my (*sigh* too large) GEDCOM, it became obvious that a "Genealogy Do-Over"[1] was in order. All records are being reviewed; profiles and source citations are being updated. Things have changed but ... the more they change, the more they stay the same; there are always more questions than answers.

Biography[2]

Debi was born in Jacksonville, FL, just as her father, Charles McGee, returned to military service with the United States Air Force (USAF). As soon as her mother, Rachel Helms McGee, was released by the physician, the family moved to McDill Air Force Base in Tampa FL where her father was stationed. The USAF played a large role in Debi's growing years, sending her family to live all over the world including places like Denver Colorado, Japan, southern California, Germany, England, Okinawa, and finally back to Florida in 1973.

Finishing High School in 1976, Debi went to work for a local governmental agency where she had positions in the Finance and IT departments. She retired in 2007, having completed 30 years service. She has been married twice, first to Ray Cundiff, and currently to Daniel Hoag.

Also Known As

I've been doing genealogy research for the last thirty years (twenty-five of them on the internet and have the emails to prove it LOL). During that time, I've gotten divorced and remarried, created websites, and changed email addresses too many times. When I'm looking for someone, I'll often search the web for names and email addresses. To facilitate people finding me, I'm listing the names, websites, and addresses I've used.

Wiki-Will for Digital Afterlife

In the event of my death or incapacity for more than 90 days, the following shall serve as my unspoken permission:

  • I would like all of the profiles for people not living, and which I alone manage, to be changed to Open. This is up to and including my own profile.
  • Space pages which I have created can all be changed to Open with the exception of the DAM_Collection.
  • If I missed anything (and for the DAM Collection space page and any Red/still living profiles on my Watchlist), I ask that they be managed in keeping with the Honor Code and preserving the privacy of living people:
    • by any of my extended family members (including my former spouse and his family), whether or not they are on the Trusted Lists.
    • Should these profiles / pages not be accessed within 180 days from my demise, the Wikitree staff shall have full and total access to manage said space and profiles in any way they see fit up to and including assigning them to any willing Profile Manger, orphaning them, or deleting them.
My thanks to the following for bits and pieces which were incorporated into my Wiki-Will:
Pat Saunders, Paula (Bond) Kohring, Liz (Noland) Shifflett, Lisa Thurston, Andreas (Basso) West, Deborah (Réaume) Collier

Hi Debi. Thank you for the resources on the Italian/French branches of my family that are not as well documented. I will start my profile, as you suggest, as soon as I come to dead ends on Ancestry.com which is soon. I know this will help and draw others with more information. I've had my DNA done through Ancestry and will attach the results to my profile once I get started. Thank you for your advice and the resources. All best, John.

Hi Debbie, Thanks so mauvch for asking. Yes, everyone has been very helpful with one branch of my family ancestry, The Eatons, who are very well documented all the way back to 14th century England and I've been building the tree on Ancestry.com for three months and found some interesting ancestors. hwever, I would like to see if anyone may have info. on the Gagliardo branch of my family who originated from Piedmonte, Italy and the Savoy region of southeastern France. I can only get back four generations but I have relatives in France that have e-mailed me but I cannot find any documentation on the connection to them and the N. Italian branch. But thanks so much to everyone on the info. sent on the Eaton branch. THOSE EATONs! What a big old family. Glad to be a member. Many thanks.

Hey Debi,

I am getting around fine thanks. I have had to submit an unresponsive profile manager request to be able to do much more as I am not in the trusted list for my father... so I am hopeful by Friday Im actually in full gear here.
