Edinburgh & the Lothians

Because this area takes in quiet rural farmlands, fishing and port communities, coal and shale mining, and of course a capital city, the range of occupations for our ancestors was huge here. Tracing family history here is never dull !

Some of the occupations of individuals that I’ve researched include

tailor

carver & gilder

printer & compositor

bookbinder

coal miner

customs officer

brewer

golf ball maker
