Was Your Scottish Ancestor a Tradesman or Apprentice?

For those of you with tradesman ancestors, you can find record abstracts kept by Inland Revenue for your apprentice tradesman. These records provide a wealth of information including: name of the guardian of the apprentice, where the apprentice came from, who he was indentured to, and the amount paid to the master tradesman for agreeing to take on the apprentice. The index of the records held by the National Archives can be viewed at: trade http://www.nas.gov.uk/guides/crafts.asp

As always, Happy Searching!
