Guild Records – members only – virtual
February 2 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Presenter: Fritz Juengling
Quite often, family history researchers stick to the usual record types when researching their family history; birth/baptismal, marriage, and death records. Of course, these are useful sources for genealogical information but there are other records that can fill gaps or simply provide more information. One of these underused records is guild records. A guild is an association of professionals with similar economic interests based on a certain craft or trade. It is devoted to the protection of guild member’s rights, training of new members, and furthering their political, economic, and trade interests. Some of the common trades that had their own guild included tanner, metalworker, tailor, and shoemaker and others.
This program is for members only. Members will receive a link to access the presentation.
