This chapter presents a historical geographic information systems approach to uncovering changes in individuals' and families' residences, occupations, and workplaces over the decade 1881–1891. To understand the changing relationship between home and work, it examines the rate and intensity of residential mobility. An increase in median distance moved is noted during the traditional years of retirement, likely indicating moves into residences of kin or to secure a residential environment more suitable to an individual with more limited personal mobility. The chapter utilizes the methods used to establish the longitudinal links needed to create the longitudinal study of the journey to work. It explains the historical record linkage literature by developing a protocol that record links geocoded samples of workers with high precision across time using public databases of decennial census records. Workers left industrial employment to start small shops within the same industry in which they were previously working, often in partnership with other artisans.
