Introduction and Instruction
In my travels, I see family photographs lost in antique stores.
I think this is sad and I feel a sense of obligation
to try and return them to their rightful families.
So, I have set up this website to do just that.
Your search for lost family photos, is absolutely free.
All of the photos I buy have names and dates or places on them.
They include Tintypes, Daguerreotypes, Cabinet Cards, Carte-de-visites,
Personal Picture Postcards, Photo Albums and Yearbooks.
At the bottom of each page I have placed a link to every page.
So go to Page 2 and check the index of all of the surnames listed.
If you find a surname that you are interested in,
then bring up a blank Google page and cut and paste this:
"Family Photos On-Line"
on the search line.
Then type in the surname and press Search.
It should bring up the page or pages that the surname is on.
Then use your FIND option (under edit on your toolbar)
and see if the first name or location matches as well.
If you are interested in purchasing the photograph, please go to Page 24.
I truly hope I can help you locate a lost loved one.
But keep in mind two things:
The names are copied as handwritten on the photo.
So the spelling may be Very, Very wrong.
So consider all near misses as a possible hit.
The location is where the picture was taken.
The person may not have lived in the location given
but had a photo taken while visiting there.
I started this project so anyone could see and copy their ancestor's photos.
But almost everyone was more interested in purchasing the photographs.
Then I lost the ability to post any photos. So viewing them is no longer an option.
If the photo is a Daguerreotype, a Sepia Print from
Daguerreotype or a Tin Type it will be labeled.
If not labeled, then it is a Sepia tone Carte-de-Visites or a Cabinet Photo.
Only a few of the photos are B&W paper from the 1900's.
Everything else is from the last half of the 1800's.
I have not included where I found these photos
because I believe that it is irrelevant.
The vast majority of the photographs
came from antique stores in Arizona.
But that doesn't mean much either since
people come from all over to retire here and the
antique stores buy from all over the country.
So head off on your adventure and Happy Hunting!
