I think this is Zborow (now Ukraine). There is a dedication on the Ark that mentions Henya Heiman, the name of first wife of (perhaps) the man all the way to right. The wife died in childbirth in 1900. This man looks just like man in only other known photo I have of Chaim Mordechai Heiman, my grandmother's brother. If so,OLD man third from right is my great grandfather, Meier Heiman, and this would be only picture of him. Meier was born in 1850 and CM around 1875. The KEY here is WHAT IS THE TIME PERIOD?? of this photo. Why are they posing in the synagogue??? If this is dedication of plaque, it might make some sense--but my family I know was religious, and CM was a merchant with a store, but I think of this kind of donation as beyond their means. The little boy with the staff would be the child who survived, but he was born in 1900 and is this photo before 1910???? ANY INSIGHTS WOULD BE SO APPRECIATED.
