I am looking for information on fatal accidents involving some of my ancestors. I have looked in the records database on the PA State Archives website (www.phmc.state.pa.us/bah/dam/rg/di/r45_MineAccidentRegisters...
) but date range for the accident of particular interest to me is missing from the site. There are links for Anthracite Districts 1899-1918, Anthracite Districts, 1924-1932, and Anthracite Districts, 1933-1972. However there is no link for 1919-1923. I don't know the reason for this omission (e.g., records for this period do not exist in the archives, someone forget to post the link, gremlins wreaked havoc with the site, ???).
I am seeking information on the following individuals, who died in the mines (at least according to the family history passed down to me):
Peter (Piotr) Olshefski, d June 1919 Loomis Colliery
Louis Jacoboski, d1924 Loomis Colliery?
Joseph Jacoboski, d c1905
Hopefully someone can point in the direction of where to look for more information.
