I just discovered a site that has some great articles on antiquated job titles and professions. The site is Genealogy Suite101, here are some of their articles that caught my eye:
Occupations of Colonial American Ancestors
Ancestors’ Occupations ? Agricultural Jobs
Ancestors’ Occupations ? Food and Drink Jobs

My daughter Autumn Rhodes emailed me about an interesting web site from the National Public Radio web site (http://www.npr.org/). As computers and automated systems increasingly take the jobs humans once held, entire professions are now extinct from milkman to telegrapher, from people who once filled those oft-forgotten jobs.
