Your Ancestor Was...Occupations of our Ancestors

Ancestral occupations can give clues to who our ancestors were, how they lived, where they lived, and most importantly, give them individual identity and personality. Nancy Lee Waters Lauer discusses how the occupations of our ancestors can guide us to additional genealogical information. This genealogy workshop was presented at the Historical Society of Pennsylvania on March 14, 2012.
