BF Van Dyke's Glass Plates

This little site contains copies of 88 old glass negative photographic plates taken by my great-grandfather, Benjamin Franklin Van Dyke. Many of them are more than 100 years old. They were passed down thru the generations ending with my cousin Caroline McMichael who loaned them to me so that I might make these copies.

Many of the people can be identified; many cannot. If you can identify any of the "mystery people" please let me know! If you're confused about the genealogical relationships see my database at; click here for the entry for BF Van Dyke.
