The Jewish Genealogy Society of Long Island (JGSLI), winner of the IAJGS
2015 Outstanding Publication Award for its You Tube Channel, is pleased to
announce its latest video, "Tips About Occupations or Is Being Called a "Son
of a Knocker-Upper" an Insult?"

We've discussed in other videos that if you want someone to get value from
your genealogical research, creating a family tree with just names, dates
and places can be viewed by others as a pretty boring document. Adding
family stories or describing the experiences family members had during their
lives makes a much more compelling narrative. One interesting facet of a
person's life is what they did for a living. This video will focus on
finding and understanding occupations and trades, both domestic and foreign.
We'll also cover occupations that don't exist anymore or if they are
expressed in languages other than in English.
