Fantastic Photo Find - Harlan County
The GOOD NEWS:
[See list of names following address]

While reading The "Harlan Enterprise Newspaper" microfilm, #S181, dated 04/10/1908, I stumbled upon several pages of photos, many taken about in the early 1900's of Harlan Countians who lived near Martin's Fork, Camp Crummie, Puckett, Path Fork, Turtle Creek. There are more than 40 families shown, most are shown standing in front of their homes; there are also some children posed in front of schoolhouses. The photos are excellent quality and some give a description of the location where the picture was taken. The pictures begin on page 33. This microfilm is available through inter-library loan, tel: 606-257-0500, ext. 2040, or for purchase for about $3.28 from:
