Article Page: Dagloners/Dayworkers in the Netherlands
This week, WeRelate looks at the Article (or Special Project) Page of Dagloners or "Dayworkers" dealing with a specific family, Eisse Geerts Veldman (1767-1823) and his wife Pieterke Hendriks Groen (1768-1854), in the Netherlands. Eisse, Pieterke and their four children Anje, Geert, Jantje, and Klaas lived in a small working-class house in what is now the Oosterstraat in Warffum. Both Eisse as well as Pieterke worked as day laborers in agriculture. A day laborer or losarbeider is a person who is paid per day. These workers have no permanent job, but work by job or temporary assignment. Day laborers in agriculture often perform seasonal work. This Article Page, is a good example of the type of Page that you can add to WeRelate for your ancestors. (learn more...)
