Re: [Slovak-World] Pennsy Coal Mine Accident Register
- Thank you for this information. I was able to look up my uncle Joe who died at age 21 in a mining accident, plus fathers of friends who had died in the mines. There was a breaker across the street from where I lived and abandoned railroad tracks & cars that I played on/in as a kid when the mine/breaker was no longer operating. That's when strip mining entered the picture and the nearby fields were destroyed. Those crater were later filled and replaced with a large housing development.

Links to PDF versions of Pennsylvania coal mine accident registers,
providing documentation on mining accidents for the commonwealth's
anthracite and bituminous coal districts, are listed above. The
information contained within each report changed over time, with a few
additional columns of data included in the later reports, as the volume
of accidents dimished. Topics covered in both the early and later
reports include: name of the inspector, name of mine, operator of the
mine, name of the injured miner, mine district number, date of the
accident, cause of accident, county in which the accident occurred,
whether fatal, whether the accident occurred inside or outside the mine,
citizenship status, nationality, job classification, marital status, and
the number of children.
These documents were created by Jerry Sherard, who donated them to the
State Archives in 2009 and 2010. Any errors and imperfections are the
responsibility of the donor..
