Pennsylvania, Register of Mine Accidents
Discover whether an ancestor was involved in a mining accident in Pennsylvania. Within this collection of more than 163,000 records are large numbers of immigrants which is indicated by their nationality along with vital information about the accident itself and whether it was fatal.
The records are from the Department of Mines and Mineral Industries documenting mine accidents for the anthracite districts and the bituminous districts between 1899 and 1972. They are held by the Pennsylvania State Archives and links to the PDF versions of the accident registers are available on the transcripts. The records explain where the accident happened, the cause, whether the accident was or was not fatal, and who was at fault. A few examples of the accidents include caught in a conveyor belt, runaway trip wrecked into an empty trip, crushed with a possible fracture of the leg, fallen roof, and falling coal.
