Debra "Dee" Wells (nee Penitch) in Search of Her Roots Updated October 7, 2008
About Our Family Research
My biological father divorced his wife (whilst still carrying his second daughter Cathleen Margaret) and left while I was just over a year old in 1964, leaving behind two daughters. He started another family, of which three brothers we haven't had the blessing of knowing. A personal decision was reached to proceed with the genealogy search independently. The door remains open for relationships as an adult with all family members with sincere interest and an open heart.
I WAS BORN WITHIN WEDLOCK. DAUGHTER OF VICTORIA ELIZABETH McGRATH AND TONY PENITCH.
This is my personal search to discover the roots from my paternal side of my family tree, the heritage that has been mystery to me. Knowing one's heritage is the right of all children, and I wish to be acknowledged as Tony's first born, and eldest daughter born within wedlock. From my internet research thusfar, I have learned I am the first born grandaughter of Louise Penitch/Miros (nee Gompkoto), and Ivan (John) Penich. (Step-granddaughter of Nick Miros of whom Louise married after her first husband passed during the war).
This is my own personal search, and personal wish to know more about my biological history and perhaps connect with some of my relatives, those of whom will be interested. I invite all sincere inquiries.
My own personal motto in life, "Live Life With No Regrets." I look forward to getting to know members of my family I have yet to have the pleasure to know.
