Hood Family and Coal Mining

Links to Useful Sites


There are plenty of other sites giving extensive lists of family history links, so I have only list a few of the main archive resources and a few that don't appear so often.




  • Scottish Mining - Excellent site for all sorts of information transcribed from original documents and information on all aspects of life in mining communities
  • Coalmining History Resource Centre - history of UK coalmining - including a searchable database of over 164,000 recorded accidents and deaths.

Here's some links suggested by Maura Stephenson's class from Colorado who used this site to help with their scottish history and genealogy projects, and which they hope others might also find useful.
