Thank you, Doug.  That is the kind of thing I was after.  In  fact, I think 
the Drake book was one that I was thinking of.

Hello  Jay,

Here are a couple of titles I find useful, not only for  occupations, but 
other terms as well:

Paul Drake, What Did They Mean By  That?: A Dictionary of Historical Terms 
for Genealogists (Heritage Books,  1994).

Marc McCutcheon, The Writer's Guide to Everyday Life in the  1800s 
(Cincinnati: Writers Digest Books, 1993). This has a chapter on  occupations.

There are probably a few newer titles out there, as  well.

Best wishes,

Doug Nicol
