"Insights into Occupational Records" - Leader: Jean Stirk


"Insights into Occupational Records"
Society Library Workshop

An explanation of official occupational records and a guide to less obvious sources. We will look at occupations that require studentship, apprenticeship, local & distant exchanges, a village speciality and summer/winter regular movement. Some occupations have many variations and some records are not job specific but relate to the pattern of work in an area that is well recorded, including the people, in local history records.
