His profile is a big mess !!
It shows three fathers and two mothers.
He was not a grandson of an Altshuler.
The photo could not possible be him dressed as in western European clerical gowns and with a tallis folded around his neck like that !
He did not have a son Matthew.

Seems "too many cooks spoil the broth" - a common affliction with Geni.

Someone should sort it out if that's possible now.

אוצרים !!
אני חושב שזה הזמן שמישהו יתפוס בעלות על הרשומה ויעשה שם סדר.

The picture appears at http://www.jewishpress.com/pageroute.do/19202 - as the photo of Bernard Drachman - a different person altogether!

There's a genealogical Salanter family website at http://www.werbel.net/genealogy/index.php

The "incorrect attribution" may come from http://www.kosherculture.org/rabgallery.html - see 12th down in the Ashkenazi column

See also http://personal.stevens.edu/~llevine/Facforum/index.html where Israel Salanter's name appears a little below the photo - but not intending to say that this is his photo.

Private User,
the Geni thing to do, that is in the spirit of the collaborative effort, is to contact at least some of the profile managers, Request to Collaborate with them, and then FIX the profile yourself...

אין כאן *שום* צורך בהתערבות של צוות האוצרים המצומצם. אנחנו יכולים לסייע, אבל לא לעשות את כל נעבודה במקומכם.

I have changed the profile photo, and I have sent a private message to Richard Smith who "owns" the incorrect photo. I believe that is the Geni thing to do.

רון, אני מצטרף לדעתו של שמואל שזה לא העסק של מישהו מהאוצרים אלא של המנהלים, במיוחד מאחר וזה פרופיל לא כל כך קדום והוא קרוב לפרופילים של צאצאיו (רובם פרטיים). אבל מאחר ואתה הוספת את הענפים של משפחות מחותניו - למה שלא תרחיב זאת גם לפרופיל של ישראל מסלנט עצמו (בקש להצטרף למנהליו) - ובהצלחה
