      Occupational sources for genealogists [English]

      Were your English ancestors railwaymen or tradesmen, lawyers or
      tax inspectors? Or perhaps you have pipemakers or policemen amongst
      your forebears? It is probable that at least some members of your
      family are listed somewhere by the occupation they pursued, and it is
      well

      worth knowing where such information is to be found. There are many
      published sources of occupational information. Numerous biographical
      dictionaries and directories of particular trades are available; many
      professional bodies have published lists of their members;some
      guides to archives relate to particular occupations; a number of guides
      to
      specific occupations, written specifically for genealogists, are
      available. Reference libraries throughout the English speaking world
      hold many of these works, which are listed in the second, greatly
      expanded,
      edition of this extensive guide to published works. Published by the
      Federation of Family History Societies, 1997. Price £5.50 (including UK
      postage). Overseas (airmail), £6.40 $US10.25; $18.60. E-mail orders
      welcomed. Books will be sent with an invoice for payment on receipt by
