Occupations and vocations

These pages list our ancestors and collateral relatives by occupation. The lists have been compiled primarily from census data for which, at the time of posting to this web site, records have been released only to 1911 in Ireland and the UK, 1921 in Canada, and 1940 in the US. Readers may wish to refer to the definitions page, for descriptions of the more unusual occupations.
