    1. CORNELIA VAN DAM PICTURES
    2. I have some negatives that were taken in the early 1900s. They were in a book that BERTHA CLARA WALLIE VAN DAM's sister had. They are very old and thin, but not too bad. I am making a guess that they will be this VAN DAM family. I would like to find if anyone might have pictures of them to compare with. Most are people and farm. Some are in a town, and some homes.
