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!


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.

Debi started doing genealogy research in the early 1990s when the internet and computers started making things easier. She attended numerous genealogical conferences between 1999 and 2005. She then took a ten year break but found she missed the joys and challenges of research. She decided 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.

Happy Digging

DNA Confirmation Notes

Paternal Line

  • The relationship to father Charles McGee 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 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.

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, thanks for your comment. All of my info has sources but most it comes from and the link would look something like this:

And I don't know if non-members can access it? Is there a better way to source it?

Thanks for your help and comments. All these Johan's are rather daunting. I think the merge for Schnepp-19 into Snapp-268 perhaps it should have gone the other way round? Is that what you think? In order to keep all the LNAB Schnepp?

Hi Debi, if you check the comments section on the profile for Schnepp-1 you will see we had multiple merges for him. There were three profiles for him so had to do them one by one to get to the lowest number. :)

Hi Debi,

Thank you for your message. Joining in to help on the wikitree is one of the best adventures I've ever been on. Yesterday my maternal side really shined. I met one of my fellow wikiteers Ian Mclean and my cousin Steven for tjhe first time. They brought me the book "Roses Revisited",a great look at my Mom's side of the family. I also joined with a merge onto the big tree, taking the dates from the 1700's to the 1500's. I guess it's time to put Rose in as a tag. I will be getting in touch with you when those strange questions arise. Take care and happy searching. Dave Savage
