Larger companies sometimes preserved records about their employees over the years. These usually contain the hiring and termination details and may include biographical data about the employees and possibly their families. If the company where an ancestor worked is still in business, you may be given limited access to their historical employee records. Few employee records have been made public, so contact the individual companies regarding their records.

Biographies or lists are sometimes compiled of members of specific occupations. Examples of occupational records for Tennessee include:

Caldwell, Benjamin Hubbard. Tennessee Silversmiths. Chapel Hill, North Carolina: University of North Carolina Press, 1988. (Family History Library book 976.8 U2c.) The record includes an index.
