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).

4/27/2020 7:02 PM P.S. from Boris: 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.
4/28/2020 2:52 AM Hello Morris,

Just an estimate of the time period, based on finding images on the Internet for "Men's suits in NYC in the 1900s".

The images for 1900 - 1910 appear to be the closest to the image in this Viewmate.

However, I would suggest that you check by different decades in NYC to find the closest match....Jo
