My mystery ancestor. Studio portrait of a Jewish man. New York. Early 1900's. Card stock of the M. Smith Studio at 331 Grand Street on Lower East Side. Also stamp of the Jampel’s Art Studio, at 22 St. Marks Place. Most likely is an immigrant from Zhitomir or elsewhere in Volyn Province, Russia. Possibly related to the families of Glizerman (Glaser in the US), or Morgulyan / Margulyan (Margulin in the US).


If anyone has a photo taken in the M. Smith Studio, or in the Jampel’s Art Studio, I’d appreciate hearing from you. It may help to narrow the range of the years when my photo was taken.


Please respond any way that is most convenient to you.


Thank you everybody! Boris Feldblyum
