Occupational Titles

Here you find occupational titles from various historical documents together with their code. At present there are tens of thousands of titles from a dozen countries and languages around the world ranging from the 17th to the 20th century. The list of titles is continuously growing as titles are coded into the HISCO coding system we use.

You may look for particular titles by searching on a word or part of it (e.g. wood turner or turner), by making a selection (e.g. all English language titles), by sorting alphabetically or by browsing all available title. For each title, more information is available by clicking on the title. Available information includes the number and the name of the group it falls under, a definition of tasks and duties, the provenance of the title or the gender of its bearer. You can click your way in the HISCO-occupational tree to related occupational groups and then down again to occupational titles that fall under it.
