  1. May I have permission to use the beautiful picture of the Smoky Mountains? I will, of course, give credit to your group. I am editor of KINFOLK, the newsletter of the Rich Family Association and one of our members has submitted an article about his genealogy and family in Western North Carolina. I live in Asheville part time and wanted to show the other members (many in New England) the beauty of this area. Thank you.
