A List of Occupations

The following is a list of occupations of which many are archaic. These are useful to genealogists since surnames usually originated from someone's occupation. They also are useful to historians in general. The list is by no means complete. I thank all of those who have contributed to the list. If you know of any not included in this list or have corrections, please let me know.
