mazpuke3.GIF (425 bytes)  Occupations

One of the frequently asked questions is - What did my ancestors for living? Of course, the profession or the main occupation of the ancestors is interesting to know by itself, but it may also give hints at future investigations in the lists of school-leavers, the archives of professional societies, the property registers and so on. In this Page the information not only about professions and professionals is gathered, but about the occupations in general, for example, some time later I will also publish in the Site some lists of wanted criminals.
