What Did They Do For A Living?
I think digging into the professions of my ancestors helps me to understand a little better who they were. This information can be very valuable in connecting missing pieces of their lives. I am always on the lookout for clues like photos, documents, and keepsakes. If I look closely, maybe I will find the answers to some of my questions. What did they do for a living? Where did they work? Was it close to their home? Did they do the same job for their whole working life? How did their job affect who they were as a person?
