I Debra aka Deboriah Greeson was born and raised in Dallas, Texas and moved to Wilmer Hutchins at the age of 10. So I am a City County Slicker, a little mix of both. I am very outgoing and friendly to a fault some might say. My raising though a bit dysfunctional taught me many things that I find useful on a daily basis. When I was 16, after my parents made me give up my only child that I would ever have up for adoption, I left home and hitch-hiked all over the country. Some might say I was a little wild and they would be right. I did a lot of crazy things, met a lot of people both good and bad and came close to death on more than one occasion. My past has served me well in that I learned from it. The choices that I made then may have hurt me but in the long run they made me a better person. The things I regret most are the things that I may have done that hurt somebody else. Those things I am truly sorry for. We don't always think about how the choices we make may affect the people we love. Now I am a Christian and I consider myself a pretty conservative person. A far cry from what I was back then! I live in a small town and go to a small Assembly of God church. I sing in the praise and worship team and I also make videos of the sermons. Since I am creative and love to do arts and crafts I am also the one that they call on to decorate when we have special fund raisers or holiday parties. I am an eclectic person in that I have a lot of interests and I tend to get too many irons in the fire. My church activities are a major part of my life but I also enjoy more than one art venue including mixed media, collage, making jewelry; macramé, wire wrap and stringing, mosaics, and more. I also buy and sell things and do sell on ebay, etsy, and spreesy as well. Yes I am a junker and come by it naturally because my dad owned a wrecking yard. I love to read, write, and learn and am always researching something. If it is helping my husband with the garden through reading gardening tips, doing a bible study, reading about historical figures, and just generally looking things up because I want to know! I love learning!
This is my profile and the name Deboriah was given to me by the Holy Spirit when I was 21. I have used this name for over 30 years and it is my preferred name.

Thanks Debra for your reference. It was already on the profile - the only source by the way. He is also an ancestor of mine and I can surely appreciate any additionnal source.

Now that you have had a little time to try WikiTree, there are a few more features you may find useful.
Ideas on what to include in a profile can be found in Styles and Standards, including some tips on writing biographies.
If you need to describe an event, an heirloom or a location relevant to your research, you may like to learn about Free Space Profiles.
Lastly, sometimes you'll run into unresponsive profile managers. We have a process for resolving those unfortunate situations.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask via my profile page. Mags

Let's say you've added your line up to your great-grandfather, but your g-g-grandfather is already on WikiTree. You go to your g-g-grandfather's profile on WikiTree, scroll down until you get to the orange box on the left that says, "If you're a family member request to join the Trusted List." Click on that. The profile manager will hopefully add you pretty soon so that one or the other of you can connect your great-grandfather to your g-g-grandfather. :)
