JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Family photo in New York Lower East Side #general

Michael Sklaroff

Dear JGs,

I have an old family group portrait that was e-mailed to me, and
it's my great-great-grandparents, Morris and Taube Sucharenko, and four
generations of their descendants. The story that goes with the photograph
is that it was taken on a rooftop on New York City's Lower Eastside, and
that it ran in the Yiddish-language newspaper, The Forward.

Family members have identified everyone in the picture, including my
Sucharenko and Sklaroff relatives, but I want to know if it actually ran
in a newspaper, and if so, which one. I'd like to get a reproduction of that
issue, if possible, along with any accompanying article or caption.

I'm looking for suggestions as to how to proceed. Also, is it advisable
to post the photograph in this forum to see if anyone has additional

Thanks for your help,

Michael Sklaroff.
