Third-generation Washingtonian. I've lived in King County, Washington USA all my life, and love it here. My husband Bob and I raised our kids here, and now have a grandson too. I'm a life member of South King County Genealogical Society and edited the newsletter for a few years.
I grew up south of Issaquah, and attended Issaquah schools kindergarten through high school. Clark Elementary (5 years), Sunny Hills and Sunset schools for one year each, Issaquah Junior High and Issaquah High School, class of '71. Later I got a chance to attend Green River Community College, earning my AA in 1987? or so. And finally, a year at the UW in Anthropology and Women's Studies.
Besides genealogy, I read everything, and love technical writing. Active member of both the Kubuntu and larger KDE community which produce and distribute free software (Linux). Active and enthusiastic PFLAG member.
I love people, art, drama, music, drawing, painting, pottery, photography.
Other links to my stuff all over the web are at about.me

I have pretty much finished entering the Coppin's. They are only distantly related to me, and that by marriage. And I shall soon be bumping up on my 5000 limit and needing to divest profiles. So if you would like to be profile manager for these profiles, just send a trusted list request for one of my Coppin's and I will transfer them. Otherwise I will likely just be 'orphaning' them anyway.

Thank you for joining WikiTree. As a WikiTree Mentor I am available to answer any questions or help solve any issues you may be having.
How To Use WikiTree is a good starting point, and the Help Index is an important place to find out how to do most tasks.
Do you have Royal Ancestors? They are already here on Wikitree! Rather than create duplicate profiles for them, please contact the EuroAristo Project to discuss connecting your family line to their profiles.
Feel free to ask me via my profile page if you have any questions.

I noticed you uploaded a GEDCOM; thank you so much! Here's a link to a great step-by-step explanation of the process, including screenshots that you might find helpful.
The help pages give lots of information about the process, good to start with 'Before you import a GEDCOM'.
