The Birmingham African American Genealogy Group
As we research our families we run across information that is hard to find sometimes.
I was out during the 4th of July I stumble across some original mining records. I am placing a few of them on this blog.
An Old Accident Books from one of the Pratt Mines.
Page in the Accident Books from the Hamilton Mine for a colored man name John Brown.
A colored man Robert Floyd was hurt in the Docena Mine.
There are records out there we just have to find them.
WELL until Next Time.........more Hunting.
