Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hometown of Hammond, Indiana, near Chicago. I now live in Boise, Idaho. I've been a paramedic since 1978, as an EMS provider, manager, educator, and in communications. I've been photographing cemeteries and gravesites for several years. I travel frequently and to many locations instructing emergency medical classes, so am able to photograph cemeteries and graves in many parts of the country and some international locations. I have developed a presentation on the art and symbolism of gravestones and cemeteries which I give through the city's Community Education system and at genealogy/family history conferences, and to various historical groups. I also give historical tours of cemeteries in Boise.

PLEASE USE THE NEW "EDIT" TOOL THROUGH FINDAGRAVE FOR ANY CORRECTIONS OR ADDITIONS. I AM FREQUENTLY IN PLACES WITHOUT INTERNET ACCESS AND MAY NOT GET TO YOUR REQUESTED CORRECTIONS FOR SOME TIME. BE ASSURED IF YOU HAVE SENT IT I WILL EVENTUALLY GET TO IT. PLEASE BE PATIENT.

I'm always available to photograph graves in the Boise/Ada County, Idaho and surrounding areas. My ISP doesn't send me photo requests for some reason, but feel free to e-mail me directly if you have any requests.

Hello,

her death date is 21 nov 1873 not 1872. I can send copy of obituary, death notices if you need them.

I would like to ask permission to use your photo for my family history and on Ancestry.com. I would, of course, credit you with the photo.

Thank you for the work you do, it is appreciated.

Buffalo Cemetery
Dear David,

Thank you so much for photographing this cemetery. I have relatives from the late 1880's to probably the mid 1900's buried there.

Sincerely,

J Petz

Regarding # 13220198
Hello I noticed that you listed Daniel Hill Driscoll as Ella Mae's father when he is in fact her brother. Father was D. Driscoll and you have a photo of his tombstone # 13220122.

thank you for your kindness in photographing the graves of my ancestors!

Hello David can you please look at this memorial 8178771 You placed a photo but it is of Samuel's parents - at least his father I'm not 100% sure about the mother - I had Mary but the memorial says another name... trying to clear this up. Was there another headstone there for Samuel?
