  1. A tintype of my great great grandfather.
  2. Mine is also a tintype. It is of my GGGG-Grandfather.
  3. It's a copy of my GGG Grandmother. She was 108 yrs old when the picture was taken.
  4. Mine are not that old. I have picks of my Grandparents on my Wyatt line and on my Lawson line. Grandfather is Lawson. Grandmother is Wyatt. I am glad to share with family.
  5. I have a picture of my Aunt Daisy taken in 1993 age 103. also a photo of an oil painting done early1800s of my great great great great grandad at the age of 84. the most interesting photos up to date photos of family homes that are still in exsitance. I even manage to look round the one where the painting was done.
  6. I have many photos that are at least 110 years old and quite a few that are at least 10 years older than that. I am scanning them in order to preserve them ,as some are fading and breaking up.
  7. I have a picture of my husbands g-grandfather, g-mother, and their seven children five boy's and two girls taken outside Tywardreath Police Station. [The youngest looks to be about ten and he was born in 1883] His name was Edward Matthews. and he was the first Chief Supertendant of police in Cornwall, his eldest son was Deputy Chief, may hubands branch went into the army and his son into the RAF the first serving in WW1 with honours, and the second in WW11 with distinction
  8. How successful have you been in scanning the tin-types? Mine do not do well, and I have a top of the line scanner.
  9. I have a number of tintypes, the oldest of which dates to about 1860 (I identified the subject & based on her dob & apparent age concluded it was c. 1860). I have had no trouble scanning these & the rouge tint on the cheeks comes through fine. I have used basic (I think )flatbed scanners, one was an HPScaanjet 4890 & my current one is an Epson Perfection V500
