Tools of the Trade

What do you know about the tools of your ancestor's trade or occupation? Learning what tools were commonly used in your ancestor's occupation may help you to interpret estate and other records correctly. I'm reasonably familiar with most types of farm equipment based on my own background, but other occupations sometimes leave me confused.

A recent blog post involving one of my ancestors who was a weaver reminded me of the importance of learning about the tools your ancestor probably used.
