Joe Rogers and little George, c. 1917, Vancouver, B.C. Possibly at worksite, Mountain View Cemetery.
"Work Life Stories or Fact Fillers? Researching Occupational Records for Family History" with Diane Rogers
You might have your ancestor's birth, marriage and death records.
Perhaps census records confirm family stories about how they made a living.
But were records left behind at their places of employment, or their union or in other places?
Would these records tell work life stories?
Determine if occupational records are available for your ancestors, whether or not they can assist with your genealogy research, and how to track them down.
Examples given will be from British Columbia and Western Canada.
