Find out about brush makers – how did they make brushes, where did they make them? In this talk, Ken Doughty covers: - The practices of the Brushmakers, the first English trade union; - Methods of manufacture; - The tramp system; - England's first trade-based family history society. Ken is an enthusiastic amateur genealogist. In the early 1900s, he rediscovered the fascinating history of the Brushmakers Society and established the first trade-based family history society.
