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.

I will be glad to go get the pictures if you can tell me which First Presbyterian Church it is in Moore County. Is it in Carthage or Southern Pines?

RE: Desrt View Memorial Park
you are welcome. I saw the request come in and when I found out where they were I thought I am working that section right now. My friend and I have just completed all the cemetery for findagrave. I just have to add the recent photos and names this week. I see you were in Paris, how did you like it? I was there about 20 years ago and remember it well.

You're very welcome. Imagine that. Fulfilling two requests for you within a week over 100 miles apart. Interesting.
