This photo was taken in Russia.   It is from the Edelberg or Birgardovsky (Davis) side. Do you recognize anyone?

Can you read the names. It appears that one name is Feni, and another Shloma, but the third one (which should be a feminine name) appears to be difficult.

The man on the right is Solomon Edelberg (son of Feivel), We think that the other man may be from the Bychkov family. Do you know his name?

I believe that my grandmother is standing at the left and that my father is the child seated on the bench. Can anyone identify any more of the Meyer clan?

This photo is the 1908 marriage of Hessie Bychkov to Simon Edelberg. We think that the people to the left of the bride are her family. The groom's family is at the right side of the picture. It appears that the parents of both the bride and groom are seated, with the thin faced woman being Fayge Birgardovsky Murgarotsky Edelberg (the groom's step-mother) and the man seated next to her is Feivel Edelberg. Standing next to the groom is my grandmother Tillie Edelberg, The small Edelberg boy is Samuel (Shmilik) who died during WWI. Hinda Edelberg Baum is to the right of my grandmother, and one of Shimon's brothers, possibly Folek or Itzak is the in front between Tillie and Hinda. Do you know which Edelberg brother is in the photo? Do you have the names of any of the Bychkov family?
