I currently have about 485,000 mining accident records (fatal and nonfatal) covering most of the United States, provinces of Alberta, British Columbia, Nova Scotia, Ontario and Quebec in Canada, and provinces of New South Wales and Queensland in Australia. However, about 283,000 of the mine accident records are the state of Pennsylvania. The mining accident records are from the late 1800s through the early 1900s. I have knowledge of all major mine disasters in the US and Canada. I can provide advice on finding U.S. mine fatalities from the late 1960s and later and in Victoria province Australia.
The best way to contact me is to post a query on this web site http://boards.ancestry.com/topics.occupations.mining/mb.ashx
or through the web site provided below, but put the words "Mining Accident (state or province)" in the subject. I continue to collect mining accident records.
I regularly check the 17 state mine board postings on http://boards.rootsweb.com/topics.occupations.mining/mb.ashx
"Roots Web Mining Boards and Mining Categories - U.S.” . By searching, one may find a helpful historical query. Any posting more than two years old probably has a bad email address link.
