The picture shows my cousin Machel Buchman (max, Yechiel)born at about 1896 in Strzelce or Brzezinca Poland ,His wife ESTHER (Nee ???) and his son Izrael.
Machel's parents were Josek-Lieb and Chaja Sura Buchman (nee Szwarzberg).
Machel immegrated to Palestine at about 1934 by himself
We do not have any clue as to who his wife ESTER was, her family surname and what happened to her.
I would appreciate any information

thanks
Yossi

11/26/2012 6:23 AM The chances to identify the people in the photo using just genealogical community are very small. The relatively new option is to search for similar images in images.google.com. If you are not familiar with it, open the site, click on the camera icon and take it from there. It is easy.

The photo can also be cropped to create separate image files for each face to run them through Google.

I have also been told that myheritage.com uses a facial recognition software of some kind. If you keep your family tree on their web site, including photographs, it will supposedly notify you if the software identifies a similarly looking person in another family tree.

Since you know the area from which Machel Buchman came from, I would research records from that area. Moreover, since he went to Palestine by himself, there is a chance there was a story behind it which may have been written up in Jewish newspapers from the mod-1930s.

Good luck in your search.
