Speaker: Dan Oren, author of The Wedding Photo
Program: The Wedding Photo: When a genealogical tree bears fruit!
A visit to an abandoned Polish Jewish cemetery in 1993 launches a
20-year search to solve the mystery of "Who is Buried in Sarah's
Tomb?" A visit with a cousin unearths a breathtaking photo of a Berlin
family wedding >from 1926 and leads to discovering their unimaginable
post-wedding history. An archivist in Prague discovers an unknown
uncle whose life takes the reader >from the Metropolitan Museum of Art
in New York to the Vatican. A memoir by Philip Roth shocks a daughter
into unlocking a father's concealed past. In The Wedding Photo Dan
Oren shares inspiring stories and techniques of how the pursuit of
genealogy opens new worlds.
Autographed copies of this book will be for sale after Dan's talk. The
price for the book at the meeting will be $32 (cheaper than Amazon or
ordering direct >from the publisher), payable in cash or by credit card
or by cell phone direct payment.
Visitors are welcome $5@
