The Burghers – societies of craftsmen and traders
By Bengt Sjögren
This event has been postponed to the fall.
The Estate of the Burghers represented 101 towns in Sweden and Finland. Burghers were organised in close to 100 craft guilds and many trading companies. These societies are often very well documented, which provides a great way to add context and flavors to your genealogy search.
