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. 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.

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!
