Bio - Deborah Towne Atchley   Deb's Blog

Debbie is a retired software engineer and retired high school math teacher.  She was born in western Kentucky, where her ancestors and many relatives have chosen to live for over two hundred years.  This made her relatives fairly easy to find in the historical record but has caused much hair pulling in DNA analysis!  Debbie started her personal genealogical research in 1977 after watching Alex Haley's Roots on TV.  She gave her first DNA sample around 2000 when Sorenson began his DNA research.  She purchased her first company DNA test with FTDNA (Family Tree DNA) in 2015 and has continued through to this day as the science changes and grows, by begging relatives for a little of their spit or cheek scrapings.  She is a member of TNGS and has taught various classes at TNGS since 2006, and holding the Let's Discuss It sessions, later with PZ Horton, until moving to Arkansas last year.  She has lived in several states and overseas and is now enjoying looking out over the cornfields in Arkansas with some of her grandchildren.
