All in a Day’s Work:
Occupational Genealogical Research
Presentation by Michael Strauss
||What did our ancestors do for a living? Did they have gainful employment? Many of our ancestors changed their vocations regularly in order to support their families. Tapping into records of employment will offer new avenues to approach family history and build the life of a specific ancestor. Old occupations and terms no longer in use are central to discovering one’s family history. Learn the methodology to researching your ancestor’s work history.
