Date Idea, Lectures & Conferences
How did laborers and tradespeople fit into Puritan society? What did people do for a living and how much respect was accorded to farmers, artisans, blacksmiths and others who did essential work without being in positions of prominence? Mr. David Lambert, Chief Genealogist at NEHGS, will discuss the variety of occupations in 17th-century New England, how they were integral to a thriving Puritan society, and how documentary evidence can shed light on their daily lives.
Mr. Lambert’s talk will be followed by refreshments from 7:30-8:00 PM.
An RSVP for this event is required (at http://puritans2018_work.eventbrite.com) due to limited space at the venue.
