Occupation Records for Genealogy at Ancestry.com
One of the most common records to determine an ancestors occupation are the federal censuses. You will be able to access all the U.S. federal censuses and many of the state censuses as well. Railroad worker collections will be searchable for free, as well as voter registrations, tax records, and city and rural directories.
I was a little surprised, but happy to see, many of the Native American record sets are available for this free weekend of searching, too. Among those sets include:
- U.S. Indian Census Rolls, 1885-1940
- Dawes Census Cards
- Cherokee Baker Roll Records, 1924-1929
- Approved and overturned Applications for Enrollment for the 5 Civilized Tribes
- Native American Citizens and Freedmen of the 5 Civilized Tribes
