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.

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.

Transfers - FAG TRANSFER POLICY:
How do I get a relative's memorial transferred to me?
First, Determine if you really need the memorial transferred to you for management. Transferring of management should only be requested If you have extensive changes to make to a memorial. You can add photos and suggest corrections without having to request management. Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a management transfer request. With hundreds of thousands of contributors, we have many overlapping family trees and it would be impossible for all contributors to manage their entire tree.

Token you left for Traci Fields
David, thank you very much for the token you left for my angel daughter Traci. She was a wonderful gift from GOD, and she's in my heart and mind every single day. Her passing has left major holes in the hearts of her family and friends.

I appreciate you helping to reach my goal of 5,000 tokens by her birthday, November 20th. Actually, thanks to you and other findagravers, so far today Traci has received 6,026 flowers/tokens. That makes my family and I extremely happy. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I'm thankful and blessed for your kindness. GOD bless you for your heavenly heart.

I am so overwhelmed with all the findagrave friends requesting flowers/tokens for my Traci. Thank you ever so much!


This is something I wrote for Traci:

It was a cold, quiet night at the cemetery. The snow was falling gently to the ground. The only sound that could be heard was the whistling of the wind. Off in the distance I suddenly heard the tiny sound of jingling bells. I looked around and wondered where the life was in the stillness of this cemetery.

As I gazed around, I saw a ray of moonbeam shining down on a small Christmas tree.

I thought to myself, "This is where the life is in the cemetery!"

Ring the bells this holiday season in memory of those you love.

Graceland Cemetary
Can someone find a Pauline Coyne and see if there is a stone and take a picture. She was born in 1904 and died in 1934. Also can you find out if her father Frederick Coyne is buried there?

Ceders & Cedar Cemeteries
Hi - The Cedars Cemetery on Reservation Road, Fort Hall, Bingham, Idaho and the Cedar Cemetery in Bannock County, Idaho are the same Cemetery. I was able to take pictures of all the headstones the other day and they are the same as is the maps giving instructions on how to get there.
Sorry,
Arnold

A. Auguste Paillet
Thank you so much for the photos for A. Auguste Paillet.
My vision is not what it once was; Can you read the dates on the two Catherine Paillets on the bottom panels?

As you are familiar with the burial customs of these raised cemeteries, would you guess that the Adam family is related to the Paillet family? On the middle panel, Victor Adam who died 1918 is the son of Jean-Baptist Adam and Julia Lamie(Lamy); Victoria Adam who died 1930 was Victoria Breaux, his wife. Elmore V.(Victor) Adam who died 1929 was their son who died in Texas. I am not aware of a connection to the Paillet family.

Merci Beaucoup,
P. P.
