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 bureaucratic attempts to regulate particular trades and professions created mountains of paper. A wide range of archives survive, and can be consulted by researchers.

This book provides a general overview of occupational sources for family historians.
