Yale 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.
