Beyond the Bauer (Farmer): Your Farm Ancestor’s Place in the Social Structure – Hybrid
September 1, 2022 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Presenter: Gail Blankenau
It has been estimated that in 1800, about 62% of German workers were engaged in agriculture. But in the Germanic states, there were different social scales and terms for farmers with farms of various sizes and pursuits. We will explore the social hierarchies to which your farm ancestors belonged and discuss terminology that can help you understand their farming experience.
