News from UKGDL (Genealogical Directories and Lists), the companion site to UKBMD:


"New Functionality on UKGDL - Occupations and Apprentices.

"We have gone through all the sites we link to on UKGDL
making note of all occupation and apprentice lists and
indexes, plus ones with specific information about an
occupation.

"There is a new menu button on UKGDL called Occupations.
This new Occupations option allows you to refine the search
of occupations/apprentices to your specific area of
interest, or browse through the list of occupations.

"For example:

"Refining the list using the word 'farrier' will bring up a
shortened list of 'apprentice farrier' and 'farrier', you
can select one or more of the available occupations and
list the sites that have related information.

"Lots of occupations included, blacksmiths, railway workers,
photographers, public house licensees, miners, seamen and
many many more. We have also included sites which list
mayors, freemen, churchwardens etc.

"There are also links to sites which list old occupations
and descriptions.

"Remember to look for similar occupations. Seaman, Mariner,
and Merchant Navy may bring up a slightly different list of
links."
