Ancestry adds staff books (1862-1969) for Jameson Distillery, Dublin

A second gift from Ancestry* this week comes in the form of a new collection of staff records from Jameson Distillery in Dublin. It's called the Jameson Distillery Staff Wage and Employment Books, 1862-1969 and includes those working at the Irish whiskey distillery at its original site in Bow Street which provided work for a wide range of craft skills to the artisans of the capital.
