This photo is labelled "Mrs. Sorkin". (I can read Russian, so I know the studio in Ekaterinoslav where the picture was taken.) But I don't know of any Sorkins in my family. She was probably a close friend of my father's family (Schecter/Tileshevsky, from Gomel/Cherykaw). She might possibly be the Feige Sorkin who came to America on the same ship as my grandfather, arriving 3 July 1905 in Philadelphia, with children Lipper, Itte, and Seine, to join her husband Morris Sorkin, 766 No. 6th St., Philadelphia. But I can't find anything about these people except this ship record, and a Blitzstein Bank deposit record for Feige Sorkin. If she has descendants, I would like for them to have this photo of her.
