Lost Faces

Oxner Family Photo Album


Surnames: Oxner, Dykeman, Jonkman

Locations: Holland Michigan

This photo album was in pieces and all that was available for purchase was the inside front cover and several pages, plus several photographs. Included in the album were two business cards and what looks like a page from a family bible for the Dykema family. It is written in period handwriting with the first date being 1863. There is also a single sheet in different handwriting with genealogy of the Oxner family

Inscription inside cover reads "F. S?L? Mrs. Ninne's Album, Holland City, Ottawa County Michigan"

Stamped Album Frontspiece "Photographs" in fancy fonts

Next page writing "A. J. O. Adrian John Oxner, Holland Michigan, 41 East 14th St"

Types of Early Photographs

The type of photograph in an album helps to date the album

Daguerreotypes (ca 1839)

Photography in USA began circa 1839 but not many are found before 1854.

Ambrotypes (circa 1854)

The ambrotype was a glass negative backed with black material so it appeared as a positive image

Tintypes (ca 1855)

The Ferrotype process (tintypes) was introduced in the United States in 1855. It substituted an iron plate for glass and is one of a kind. No copies could be made from a tintype.

Carte de Visite or CDVs (ca 1859)

CDV stands for carte de visite. CDVs replaced ambrotypes, producing a card 2.5 by 4" CDVs arrived in the United States around 1859, on the eve of the Civil War (1861-1865). On June 30, 1864 a tax on photographs, ambrotypes, daguerreotypes and other "sun-pictures" went into effect. Tax Revenue Stamps had to be placed on the backs of photographs from that date (1864) until August 1, 1866. This helps date CDVs taken in this time period.

Cabinet Cards (circa 1870)

CDVís were replaced in the 1870s by Cabinet Cards which were on a larger 4 by 6" card.

Dykema Family Register

This is a loose double sided sheet of lined paper in period handwriting. It is in Dutch. The first date is 1863. It is titled FAMILY REGISTER. Above that, in more recent handwriting someone has added the notation

"Johannes Dykema died 1915 Jan 29
Martha Jonkman Dykeman "

I have not included the actual dates, the Family Register is births, deaths and marriages.

The Dutch words you need to know are geboren = born; overleden = died; getrout met = married with. See more Dutch church words translated from Dutch to English
