Question Please on occupation! COMPLETE
« on: Thursday 10 November 11 12:49 GMT (UK) »
Hi There,

I'm trying to find the whereabouts of my Flanagan ancestors, i know they moved around a bit from Waterford then Belfast, then Belfast back to Waterford.

On the Belfast Street Directory in 1899, my 2xgrandmother Mrs Flannagan, and her occupation is Spirit/Grocer.

On the Waterford Street Directory in 1894, possible 2xgrandmother Mrs Flanagan, and her occupation is provisions.

Please can anyone help me on this occupation: provisions, is it anything like spirit/grocer.

Any answers are welcome.

Kind Regards
   Gary

'Provisions' is another way of saying 'groceries'.  Grocers are sometimes described as 'provision dealer'.
