  Calli: I still have him as Gelbach. For some reason, the Germans often change a Russian G to an H. Helbach/Gelbach can be seen in the 1909 St. Pete album standing 3rd from the right http://picasaweb.google.com/Caissa1...

Quite the reverse is true: There is no 'H' in Cyrillic and so they use a G instead. :D

  Calli: Right, like when my girlfriend asked whether the jeans made her ass look big, I said no, her ass made the jeans look small. ;-}
