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 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"[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.


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.

Happy Digging

  • 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.

  • 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

When I uploaded my gedcom file it said it was too large. So I started entering everything manually. When I set up my account I entered my married name where my name at birth should be. I want to change my name but it won't let me until the gedcom is deleted. When I go to delete it, I get a message no file found. So I feel like I'm stuck in a loop.

Also how does one enter their DNA results. Thanks Julia

Hi Debi-

I have a 9000 person tree on I've downloaded a gedcom, but getting a response that it's too big for upload on wikitree. I have this same tree connected on Family Tree Maker 2017.

Is there a way that I can contribute this to WikiTree?

Thanks, Bill Greggs

Thanks for your comment on Samuel. I love solving these puzzles. Samuel is one of a convoluted line "James and Emm Jepson had sons James, Ephraim and Thomas, among the founders of Buxton. The eldest Ephraim had sons that he named James, Ephraim and Samuel. His son James had a son James (actually two, the first dies) and a son Thomas. Ephraim, son of the eldest Ephraim had sons Samuel, Ephraim and James. Samuel, son of the eldest Ephraim had sons he names Samuel and Ephraim. All 4 of the Ephraim lived in Buxton at the same time, known as Ephraim Sr, his son Ephraim Jr, next in birth order Samuel's son Ephraim, known as Ephraim 3rd and finally in birth order is Ephraim Jr's son, known as Ephraim 4th. Of course their descendants named their sons Samuel and Ephraim.
