Trades and Professions Stuart Raymond
A huge amount of information about our ancestors can be discovered by consulting the records of their occupations. Employers kept records of their employees. Trade unions, professional associations, and trade guilds kept records of their members. And bureaucrats attempts to regulate particular trades and professions created mountains of paper. This book provides a general overview of occupational sources for family historians. Its aim is to tell you where to find information about your ancestors’ occupations. Contents include: scholars, apprentices, the army, personnel and business records, trade guilds, unions, books, journals, directories, parliamentary papers, etc. It gives web site addresses where information can be found.
