Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am comparably new to genealogy (2001) but have become a "junkie" very quickly. I live in the Seattle area where my family has lived for over 6 generations.

I am researching: Smith, Ristine, Kipp, Ingersoll, Cunningham, Bishop, Bean, Moose, Platt and Golnick, as well as many other branches of these names. I have been blessed to have connected to many members of my family, who have been working on genealogy much longer than I have, and have been so generous to share their hard work with me, which has given me a great base to build upon.

I have been working with my Aunt Sharon ("sharon") since 2005, adding our shared genealogy to findagrave from my husbands side of the family, and have connected with so many generous volunteers all over the United States who have located and photographed family headstones for us. We both try to return the favor when ever we are asked to, and are so grateful to findagrave for this service, which has added so much to our research. We never would have been able to accomplish so much without findagrave, and the generous volunteers that are members.

Most of my entries are relatives. If you are too, I would love to hear from you and compare notes. Please include "findagrave" in subject line with any correspondance.

Catherine Westfall Foster
Can you remove the link for Catherine Westfall Foster 39367307, to Thomas J Westfall 77839584, he is not her father. They born six years apart, so I don't think they are father and daughter.

You are most welcome---and how was Paris?

Use the edit button on the upper right corner of the page-

Then choose the edit you want to link or change.
It's a new way the sight has adopted to make changes. It does away with the emails and a person goes to their Contributor page and it will list at the top the edits that have been suggested for a particular person. It took me several months to see this and to edit entries that were requested to me to change or link.

RE: Poores in Brooklawn

There are a few other Poores in Brooklawn. If you are interested in checking, go to the following website;

Enter the surname in the search engine, and it will bring up a list.

Let me know if you create any other memorials or make photo requests in Brooklawn. It is a well laid out memorial park, and I enjoy going there, so it was a pleasure to take these photos.
