There are some gorgeous photos in these albums, and I am offering a quality reproduction service so as to allow all descendants to have copies of their ancestors photos. The tintypes are one-of-a- kind as that was the nature of a tintype - it substituted an iron plate for glass and is one of a kind. No copies could be made from a tintype.

I welcome submissions, just go to the submission form OR send directly to me in email at olivetreegenealogyATgmail.com (replace AT with @) All letters remain the property of the individual submitter.
