Trades, Travels and Trysts

Most of our ancestors had trades. With new inventions and changing economic times, there were often strong reasons for them to relocate – especially those in their early twenties. For example, in many areas it was the first-born male that took over the family farm; other boys were “given the road” instead – some of my forbears were! This presentation is intended, using many examples, to show the wealth of information that is now available on both the trades and the likely travels of our forebears within the UK. There are many local history books (often published by lesser-known publishers) and there is a weath of information on the web – if you know where to find it!
