Debora Ragland Buerk

I’m a displaced southern writer living in the Pacific Northwest. I earned my Bachelor of Journalism (BJ) at the University of Missouri School of Journalism in Columbia, Missouri, and have more than forty years of experience in writing, editing, and strategic organizational communications. I’m retired but do pro bono communications.

I live on Whidbey Island off Seattle, Washington, with my husband of more than forty years and two feral cats.

On this website, you’ll find four different sources of content. One is a general blog I call THE WRITE STUFF Who knows what I’ll write but I try to give you a different point of view.

I enjoy researching my family history. I post my findings here on two different pages. One is dedicated to the RAGLAND FAMILY HISTORY We’re a big clan so it called for its own page. My research is done primarily by Ancestry.com and other secondary sources.

The page entitled, MY FAMILY HISTORY houses the research on other branches of my family tree. Currently, I’m researching these family branches primarily: Raglands, Dunns, Taylors, Beaches, Ohares, and Buerks. I use the internet, especially ancestry.com and other secondary sources.
