I started doing genealogy research in the early 1990s when the internet and computers started making things easier, then took a ten year break but found I missed the joys and challenges of research. When I joined WikiTree and uploaded my (*sigh* too large) GEDCOM, it became obvious that a "Genealogy Do-Over" 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.
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.

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.
In the event of my death or incapacity for more than 90 days, the following shall serve as my unspoken permission:
Have you taken a DNA test for genealogy? If so, login to add it. If not, see our friends at Family Tree DNA.

In regard to my pre-1700 certification, most of my recent efforts have been on making/fixing connections between members of the Webster family (and the Rankin family), in Virginia, in the early 1700's. Of course, those people's parents and grandparents were immigrants, mostly from England and Scotland, during the 1600's.
If you are aware of a project that relates too any of that, please let me know.

Thank you! I am enjoying Wikitree very much. I’ve been feeling around, putting up some new profiles and reading about and learning the ropes. I obviously have a lot to read, learn and improve on. I appreciate the help and look forward to relying on you! I truly want to make it correct. My new goal (as I go on vacation next week) is to go back to my profiles and improve my sources. Nothing like getting in a hurry! I do have a millions questions though so hold on!
Thanks again, Pam Robinson Porterfield

Glad you enjoyed my stories. Yes I have read about getting started and I expect I will be reading and rereading the great material that is on Wikitree. I will be slowly adding all my research on here as I am having to divide my time between this project and my other genealogy project that I was already working on. At this time I will spend most of my time on Wikitree working on the Parker y-DNA Project FG#7 tree then add my other lines later. Again thanks for the offer of help as I am sure I will be asking for some. Wayne N. Parker

I am off to a slow start, did a little reading and am just now uploading a GEDcom file with my parents and grandparents. Then I plan to add my sources. I appreciate having someone to contact in case I need help. Thank you.
