District of Columbia Indentures of Apprenticeship, 1801-1893


This publication contains abstracts of indentures of apprentice recorded in Volumes 1 through 3 (May 1801 - April 1827) and Volumes 5 and 6 November 1835 - August 1893). Volume 4 is missing and therefore is not included. Each abstract gives name, age, sex, and sometimes race of the apprentice; institution or person doing the apprenticing; length of time in service, skill to be taught; master to whom apprenticed; provisions about the formal education of the apprentice; money and/or clothing to be provided.
