On the reverse of the photo is the logo of the photographic studio in Tarnopol :

Can anybody recognise these Polish anscestors of mine?

8/2/2012 7:09 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.

Good luck in your search.
