Fran is currently working on a large group of CDV type photos from primarily New England photographers. This photo was taken by Holloway Photographers in Newport RI. They may be young missionaries. Other family groups being worked on are: Root, Lyman, Hamilton and Simpson. Fran would like to share info and pictures with another working on these Sir Names. You may contact her by leaving a message for her in the comments box at the bottom of the page.
Haight Family Ancestors
This photo was taken at Rockaway Beach, Oregon in 1922-1923. You can see the Twin Rocks in the distance. Although these people look totally different from the other Haights in the album. I do believe they are part of the family. Other family sir names include Beeman, Crane, Carpenter, Fowler, Layton and Snow. North Eastern American Indian is mixed in with some if not all of these people as some of them are Mayflower Descendants.

Tintyping (sometimes called ferrotyping) is a method of photo production. It’s predecessor was the glass ambrotype. Tintypes first appeared in the United States in 1865, and continued to be used until the 1920′s. Tintype photo sizes can range from one inch gems (an oval shape) to 11×14″. To produce, a photographer would first take a photo, then mount the exposed negative onto a black-painted piece of iron (not tin). Because of this, it will attract like a magnet. Tintypes became popular because they were instant, inexpensive and more quickly produced. Because each photo was individually processed, mounted, and varnished, tintypes are often in excellent condition.
Additionally, their cost and easy accessibility has been resulted in the production and availability of many more tintypes than ambrotypes. The amount of care quality, and detailed preservation of tintypes make them an excellent reference for family history and dating.
