The Handloom Weavers of Perth website
Genealogy is an ever fascinating subject and you may be surprised at just how many research approaches are available to you. We are all informed about the primary concepts of – start with you and hunt the down those birth, marriage and death records. Very soon after that, avid researchers are busily tracking down the most likely census returns. However, were you aware that you may be missing out on another incredibly valuable but often overlooked resource in researching your ancestor’s; researching their trade?
On many of the above mentioned records you will likely find the profession or trade of your past generations listed along with all of the vital statistics data. From this point on you can begin your journey down an amazing path of discovery, which will not only provide you with more factual information but more importantly bring you closer to knowing exactly who your ancestors were as individuals.
In this wonderful article on “The Handloom Weavers of Perth” from Scotland’s Greatest Story you will get a glimpse of the significance of this type of research and the value it provides not only to your genealogy research but to your family history as well.
I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.
The website is available at www.perthweavers.bravehost.com and will be extended further next year, once I get a chance to continue it!
Hopefully it might be of use to some of those with Perth ancestry!
