Dan A. Oren’s book “The Wedding Photo” details the use of conventional and unconventional investigative pathways to learn Jewish genealogy. This talk will focus on the chapter entitled “Two Horses in Lublin” that illuminates how studying the history of one building provided dramatic genealogical results that reverberate to the present day. The use of genealogical resources beyond standard vital records can expand one’s knowledge in unexpected directions.
Dan A. Oren, M.D. is the founder of The Friends of Jewish Heritage in Poland and has worked for thirty years as a psychiatrist/researcher at US National Institute of Mental Health and professor at the University of Rzeszów, Poland and today is a faculty member of Yale University. Oren wrote Joining The Club: A History of Jews and Yale, and co-authored How to Beat Jet Lag: A Practical Guide for Air Travelers, as well as numerous scientific articles. His most recent book is The Wedding Photo.
