Was Your British Ancestor an Apprentice or Tradesman?

For those of you with tradesman ancestors, who have a subscription to Find My Past, you can find record abstracts kept by Inland Revenue for your apprentice tradesman. These records provide a wealth of information including: name of the guardian of the apprentice, where the apprentice came from, who he was indentured to, and the amount paid to the master tradesman for agreeing to take on the apprentice.

If you do not have access to Find My Past, you can access an index of the records through the National Archives at: trade http://www.nas.gov.uk/guides/crafts.asp

As always, Happy Searching!
