What one occupation is in one culture, it is completely different in another Culture and Time
When researching your family ties, you run across Census sheets. These tell you where the person lived, with whom, how long they were married, the present status of marriage, the children's names and as their occupation, it lists student or whatever job they held.
My Grandfather used to deliver for a Drug Store. That's pretty easy to understand because in America, we know what occupations we have. Now, what if your ancestor is from "across the pond" in jolly ole' London? Do you know what his occupation on another census from another century might be?
Now with this link, these people have gone throuh the amazing effort to categorize every occupation and its' definition for you to ponder. What can you do with it? Nothing. Merely marvel at what they did and how they endured it. Thank you to A Walk Through the Lens for putting this together.
