Historical Occupational Trade Directories now online

Familyrelatives.com is pleased to announce the first of several new and important records to be put online - part of a program to add more than 10 million new records.

Starting with the most recent records to go online are the Pigot's Trade directories, these are a unique collection and cover 27 counties and provide invaluable information for the 1830's going back as far as the time of William IV.

The Pigot's Directories currently cover the period from 1830 to 1839 before the official Civil Registration began and are a valuable source of additional information when researching your ancestors. All major professions, nobility, gentry, clergy, trades and occupations including taverns and public houses and much more are listed. There are even timetables of the coaches and carriers that served a town.

Parishes are listed for each area with useful information including the number of inhabitants, a geographical description and the main trades and industries of the area or town.

The collection is fully searchable and can be searched by name or occupation or each county may be easily browsed by page. This is a useful resource for anyone wanting to know more about the area where their ancestors lived and worked and is available to members with a subscription.
