The JGS of Greater Washington announces our May 22, 2005
meeting.

In cooperation with the Survivor=92s Registry of the
United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, JGSGW brings
you:

A Most Extraordinary Situation ---- Genealogical Adventures In Poland.
Presented by Mr. Yale Reisner, Director of
the Ronald S. Lauder Foundation Genealogy Project at
the Jewish Historical Institute of Poland in Warsaw

Date: Sunday, May 22, 2005
Schmooze Time: 1:30
Featured Program: 2:00-4:00
Location: Rubenstein Auditorium of The United States
Holocaust Memorial Museum

Mr. Reisner will present dramatic, moving and sometimes
amusing accounts of the work of the Ronald S. Lauder
Foundation Genealogy Project in Warsaw as it helps Jews
of Polish origin and Poles of Jewish origin rediscover
and sort out their often twisted roots and complex
backgrounds. He will tell of child survivors and their
offspring, of family ties lost and found and of new potential
sources of information. Come and hear of your distant and
perhaps not-so-distant cousins who remain in the lands of
your ancestors, how you can help them and how they might
help you.

Since 1994, Yale S. Reisner has been assisting individuals
and families in uncovering their family histories. The Lauder
foundation is a non-profit Jewish educational foundation
active in 15 Central and East European countries. Mr. Reisner
holds degrees in East Central European Regional Studies from
Columbia College and the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy
and has studied at Hebrew University, the Jewish Theological
Seminary of America, Villanova University, the YIVO Institute
for Jewish Research, and the U. S. National Archives. He has
spoken at IAJGS conferences and has published articles in
the USA, Canada, and Poland.

The lecture is open to the public. Admission is free.
