Does anyone know of an archive in UK in which family announcements are kept,
such as where families announced births, marriages and deaths in the local
(Jewish) periodicals?
Ko Sturkop
Yes. B/M/D announcements have appeared weekly on the "Social and
Personal" page the Jewish Chronicle, almost (though I think not quite)
since its founding in 1841. It's my understanding that someone (sorry, I
forget who it is) is currently computerising these and will be soon be
publishing a book on them.

When I was a kid, we used to refer to this page as the "hatches, matches
and dispatches."
