The Miners Registry
An electronic registry of the
miners who have toiled in the past and up to the present in the coal
mines of the microregion is underway.
The project seeks to register the names, dates, location of mines worked,
union affiliations and other geneaological data of miners that date
back to the early days of mining in Athens, Hocking, Morgan and Perry
Counties, through current day mining operations. This data will be
entered into an electronic data base that will be available to the
public. Ancestors of deceased miners and current day miners will receive
a basic receipt for entry into the registry. Matted and framed certificates
with the name of the miner can also be purchased from the Little Cities
Council and these sales will help offset the cost of the project.
For more information about the project contact Miners of the Little
Cities Registry director Cheryl Blosser at the Little Cities of Black
