Greeter or Messenger comment/email, Welcome to WikiTree again! *grin*
Thank You notice, it may be because you explained a change you made to a profile. I love seeing those!
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.

DNA Confirmation Notes
The relationship to father Charles McGee's maternal line is confirmed by a 70.8 cM match between Debi McGee Hoag GEDmatch G293623 and her paternal third cousin Nancy Rose GEDmatch A125363.
The relationship to father Charles E McGee's paternal line is suggested by a 61.4 cM autosomal DNA match between Debi McGee Hoag GEDmatch G293623 and her paternal fourth cousin Larry Hayer GEDmatch A037820; more cousin matches are needed for triangulation.
The relationship to mother Rachel Helms's paternal line is suggested by a 74.2 cM autosomal DNA match between Debi McGee Hoag GEDmatch G293623 and her maternal third cousin once removed Julia (Bell) Lansberry GEDmatch M071333; more cousin matches are needed for triangulation.
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.
Escarlata Cisneros on Facebook and Second Life. My psuedonym started from having to stay under the radar when I joined Facebook (supposedly respectable small government employee nearing retirement having too much fun at renaissance faires). About half the people I know only know me by Escarlata.

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
Debi Hoag's DNA has been tested for genealogical purposes. It may be possible to confirm family relationships by comparing test results with Debi or other carriers of her ancestors' mitochondrial DNA.
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Debi:
Debi (McGee) Hoag:
Autosomal DNA Test, GEDmatch G293623
I'm sorry I cannot help you with any information on the Fore line. All I know is that Robert Fore was married to one of my ancestors, Caroline Baltz, who's mother was a Doughty.
Best of luck in your search!
I don't know how much research you have on Daniel's family; though, you may be interested in the fodder for LNAB of Ann. The research of W. C. Armstrong (Lundy Family) and R. E. Willson (Willson Family) have Hoag. Research of A. M. Showell (Annals) notes Hogg. A will of a brother Thomas G2G tends towards other supposed evidence on Ancestry for LNAB Staineridge.
Hi Debi! I saw your message on my wall about uploading my DNA to GEDMatch. I've uploaded my Ancestry raw DNA data to MyHeritage, but don't have any plans to add it to any other data bases at the moment.
However, I can tell you exactly how I am related to Samson Hinson. He is my 5x great grandfather. (Samson Hinson > Wade Hinson > Jane Elizabeth Hinson > Alvin S. Huneycutt > Ollie Lee Huneycutt > Mildred Louise Russell > Susan Kay Hefley > Me.)
Hi Debbie, I found the Source Sprint by accident when sourcing profiles I had previously entered as a complete noob. :) Thanks for your kind words and for the encouragement. Getting everything sourced is in the forefront of my mind.
I was trying to post William Mann to a tree when William Meares came up as possibility the same person. In trying to check the box to reject that possibility, I touched the name and he was automatically linked. That has happened before, and is not easy to correct. Is it possible to add another step, such as, "Are you sure you want to...?" before It is linked? Please suggest it to somebody!
