Love, Murder and Genealogy

Sep 22 2020 7:00 – 8:00 PM CST

Dora Feldman McDonald, the daughter of German Jewish immigrants, made the front page of Chicago newspapers in 1907 when she shot her lover. Dora, who was married to one of the most powerful political bosses in Chicago, ended the affair and her lover’s blackmail murderously. What happened to her after her dramatic acquittal the following year? Genealogist Mike Karsen uses every trick in his tool bag to set the record straight and follow her trail.
