Researching around the globe

My current research project is to identify the persons, who reportedly were serving at the Bronenosets Potemkin at the time of mutiny in 1905.
Photo was reportedly taken in US, and has no markings of names our anything else. Persons pictured are in usual civil attire.
Found out that the authoritative list of sailors was carefully researched and published only in 2008.
It turns out that there was around 800 sailors on Potemkin. It seems that from 10 to 45 of them migrated to North (or South) America. Some with the help of Dukhobors moved to Canada.
It looks like czar’s Department of Police had pictures of most of those sailors.
Trying to find those pictures in Moscow archives and museums now. Very limited success and still no ID.
