TheGenealogist has released New Who’s Who records into its expanding Occupational Records adding thousands of additional individuals. This release includes records covering individuals from all over England, Scotland, Ireland, Canada, USA, New Zealand and further afield.
The records can be used to discover more about an ancestor’s achievements and are fantastic for identifying where next to apply your research. Who’s Who records will confirm birth dates and sometimes the place of birth. Often they give a father’s name and occupation and a great deal more useful information that may help to build a better family history.
Use these records to:
- Add details to the lives of your ancestors
- Discover their accomplishments
- Fill in gaps in the information that you already have on an ancestor
- Find other records and places to search for forebears.
These records will often allow us to recount a much more rounded picture of the life of a person and so enrich the telling of their story.
This latest release expands TheGenealogist’s extensive Occupational records collection that includes actors, apprentices, clergy, crew lists, directors, flight, freemen, law, railway, sports, teachers and biographies as well as a number of other Who’s Who books.
