My Ancestor Was A CoalMiner 3rd Edition

Fifty years ago Britain was reliant on coal for its energy needs. Across the country, over a million Brits worked as miners, risking injury and often their lives to extract this “black gold” from the earth. These robust people were admired by many for their courage and physical durability, and though feared by some for their political strength, they helped shape the national identity for generations.

This fully revised edition by David Tonks, who was brought up in an East Durham colliery village, will help you discover the world in which your mining ancestors lived—a world that, perhaps, is more complex and fascinating that you might imagine. In addition to detailing the social history of the miners, the book establishes which records are available and how to access them.
