With each new family tree project I learn something new. This might simply be new geographical areas I’ve not previously researched, record data sets, illnesses or causes of death, historical events relating to the time period or social history of the time, or even occupations.

I like to research the occupation for the time period, and include this in my reports for clients. I will update as I go, but here are a few to start with:

Tram Driver in 1902

19th Century Gunsmiths

Huddersfield Textile Industry

Cotton Piecer

Chimney Sweep
