Hello,
I just signed up for this website and hoping that someone can guide me in the right direction.
I am a reporter working with a very popular national magazine and I am are seeking someone to profile who lives in a light house (they can own or rent it) - f Can someone direct me to a lighthouse dweller who might be a good subject to profile or could you recommend someone to contact who may know of a good candidate to feature in the magazine? Please email me for more details about the name of the magazine, etc.

Many thanks!

Would be easy to know which nation is meant with national. If it happens to be the Netherlands I can help you, but someting inside me whispers it will most probably not be the Netherlands 8)

I'm sorry about my lack of clarity. I am new to the site. I am seeking a lighthouse dwelling woman (she can be part of a couple, family or single) who lives in the United States. Many thanks!

Well, Jeryl.....There is a woman we know of......

The White River Light Station near Whitehall, Michigan, has a permanent, full-time museum curator, Karen McDonnell, who has lived in the lighthouse for 27 years.

There is currently a funding debate going on about this site.....Story here....
