Week 11: Read the back posts from the Transitional Genealogists Forum
I spent yesterday afternoon reading the questions and answers in the forum. It was very interesting and helpful.
There was one post that was the most helpful to me. The question dealt with someone needing help with an occupation on the 1800 census. Many people posted what they thought the occupation was and one person posted a link OCCUPATIONS OF YESTERYEAR with the occupation and description for pre – 1900 records.
I printed it out and put it in my family history book along with the census I have on my family.
Did you know that Sawbones is a Physician?
