Old Occupations

Updated: Feb 5, 2019

Often when researching our family history, we come across defunct terms and titles. Sometimes the meaning of terms change, too. For example, a "Hooker" in olden times was a textile mill worker. Sometimes it pays to do a little background research about the language of the period to properly determine what these terms mean.

Here are some places you can find information about old occupations:

1) Genuki United Kingdom and Ireland Occupations [Link]

2) Victorian Occupations [Link]

3) Dictionary of Occupational Titles [Link]

4) Unusual Trades of the Past (French) [Link]

5) Old Occupation Names [Link]

6) Dictionary of Occupational Terms [Link]

7) Descriptions of Occupations [Link]
