Workaday Wednesday - What is a Worker? ,

I came across this quotation recently on Pinterest, and thought it  was worth considering in relation to our own families.  With thanks to www.ponderabout.com 

Do these descriptions strike a chord with the lives of your ancestors?

Workaday Wednesday is one of many daily prompts  from Geneabloggers encouraging bloggers to record their family and local history.


  1. Yes, it does strike a cord. I have all three in my family tree.

  2. Thanks for a post that leads us to evaluate our own ancestors...
    I have included this in Interesting Blogs..
