Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been working on my family genealogy since approx. 2001, and I became a "junkie" very quickly. I live in the Seattle area where my family has lived for over 6 generations, coming primarily from Ohio and Florida.

I have been working with my Aunt Sharon ("sharon") since 2005, adding our shared genealogy to findagrave from my husbands side of the family, adding all the information under her membership (#46795073). We 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.

I am researching: Smith, Ristine, Kipp, Ingersoll, Cunningham, Bishop, Bean, Moose, Kivett, 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.

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 correspondence.

We respectfully request permission to use the cemetery sign photo in our online tree with credit. Marie has a cousin interred there and the photo will make a great addition.

Thanks for your consideration.
