Day Laborers and Farm Workers by Andrea Bentschneider
This presentation will focus on a work contract for a day laborer in Mecklenburg that gives deep insight into the activities during the year, the harvest festivals, working hours and wages, with additional information about life on an estate in Silesia from a person's diary. Our ancestors' lives in northern Germany revolved around the manor house estates common in Brandenburg, East Prussia, Pomerania, Mecklenburg, Saxony, and Silesia. Life was not that much different from one state to another.
