my aunt wasn't a printer - or was she?
« on: Thursday 08 April 21 20:07 BST (UK) »
Hello,
My aunt was a tailoress and a housewife her whole life.
However her marriage cert appears to suggest she was, at the age of 26 (in 1928), a Printer? Can anyone suggest an employment closer to tailoring that it might actually be, rather than a printer. Nobody in her family was a printer and her father's profession was nothing to do with it; seems strange she would be listed as a printer therefore.

Thanks in advance.

ah thanks, I just looked it up and it means she was a pattern maker. Makes much more sense!
