Project: Categorization


Born in Waycross, Georgia and reared in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, my heart is in the South. I work in information technology but genealogy is one of my hobbies. If you message me and I don't respond immediately, please don't be offended. I usually run a couple of weeks behind, but I will get back to you.

I am first and foremost a Christian, devoted husband, father, son, brother and grandson. In researching my own family history I eventually branched out and have been working on Southeast Georgia families in general. Hopefully the information that I have posted here will be of some help to others.


I have always been interested in technology, especially computers. That interest led to my career choice. I have worked with computers in some form or fashion since 1990. The Linux operating system captured my attention in 1995, and I have been working with it ever since. I have been a full time Unix and Linux systems administrator since 2001.

As mentioned previously, I also enjoy genealogical research. Uncovering lost family history and solving age-old mysteries is intriguing and fascinating to me. I began my quest to discover my past in the mid 1990's. After taking a break from it for several years, I resumed the hobby in 2010. My activity level ebbs and flows depending on my free time, but I am always on the lookout for clues that may aid in my research.

Another hobby which I recently took up is amateur radio. Many folks know it by the name ham radio. I have always been interested in it, but finally took the plunge and took the required exam to receive my FCC license. I was granted a Technician class license on July 17, 2014 with the call sign KM4DCZ[1]. Since then I have also become a SKYWARN certified storm spotter and have completed several FEMA ICS/NIMS courses. Since I live in an area that sees frequent tornado outbreaks, I want to be able to assist in the community response when such an event takes place.

It's been a week since we first contacted you about the Categorization project. If I don't hear from you by August 14, I will assume that you don't wish to be part of the project any longer and will remove the badge. I thank you and look forward to hearing from you.

Natalie, Categorization

I reached out to you in a private message about a month ago - my great grandmother is Annie Maud Dixon, daughter of John Jasper Dixon. Unfortunately, I can't move forward with him without your permission, as his is not an open profile. Would love to hear back from you!

So happy my family tree merged and it was with your information after I added my grandfather Jesse Carter's sister Allie Carter. I was grinning from ear to ear. I was born in Waycross and raised in Riverdale, GA. I also lived in Nashville, TN, so I know where Murfreesboro is. Awesome.

Allen, I've been working on my family's genealogy. My grandfather James Augustus (Gus) Tippins & his brother Asberry Phillip Tippins were both sons of William Isaac Tippins & Martha Sweat Tippins. My grandmother Talona (Lona) Downs Henderson Tippins was married to James Augustus (Gus) Tippins and was also the daughter of Mary Rosella Boatright Waters Henderson Tippins. Mary married my grandfathers brother Nathaniel Tippins. I am trying to link my family tree but can't go any further without your permission. If you would let me know if you could please help me.

Sincerely, Cathy Anola Tippins Wikitree I.D. Tippins-97
