Hatches, Matches and Dispatches

Doreen Berger

The Social & Personal pages are often the first place people turn to when they open the Jewish Chronicle to see who's been hatched, matched or dispatched in the past week. For more than a decade, genealogist Doreen Berger mined the Jewish newspapers of the Victorian era for her remarkable two volumes, The Jewish Victorian, covering 1861-1870 and 1871-1880. She revealed some of the fascinating stories and scandals she discovered, including illicit love affairs, murders and communal disputes.
