Heritage Photos: Trades and Professions: Farming: January 15, 2013

Tuesday, January 15th, 2013

Over the past few months, we have searched out heritage photos that depict where and how our ancestors lived.  Now we are going to use heritage photos to try to get a sense of the trades and professions our ancestors would likely have been involved in. 

Our photo collection this week is all about Farming. Chances are you have at least one, if not several, farmers in your family tree. 

Our first photo is from Wales:

Heritage Photos will be back on January 15th.

We are going to start the year off by looking at any photos that we can find of the trades and professions our ancestors may have been involved in.  Some are fairly obvious and photographs of them easier to find, for instance, farming, fishing and blacksmiths. Some however, continue to elude us, an Ale Conner for example. We have yet to come across a photo for that!

If you have any trades or professions that you would like to suggest, and if we can find photos for them, that have no copyright issues of course, then let us know and we will see what we can find.

As always, if you have photos you would like to share, let us know.
