Discover Your Ancestors’ Occupations


This informative book shows how occupations can help give a more detailed picture of your ancestor’s life and how trades affected their well being. As well as taking a look at digital records, it also covers some of the more unusual documents available in archives for ancestors who worked in agriculture, trade and industry, the professional classes and the entertainment sector. Going further, you can also look at living history museums where all the family can get a flavour of life as a Victorian workhouse master or blacksmith, as well as some of the courses out there for you to try your hand at your ancestor’s trade.
