The online version of the Miners of the Little Cities Registry is available as a spreadsheet and will open when you click here.
The Miners Registry is an attempt to gather the names of all people in the Little Cities area who have worked in coal mines. The first edition of the Miners of the Little Cities Registry was released in October 2008. Approximately 6,000 names have been entered into the registry. Over 400 of the names came from registration forms submitted by citizens since the announcement of the project. The balance came from research by LCBD researcher Cheryl Blosser and other volunteers.
The registry is divided into four subsections: full list of names, followed by names with mines worked, unions joined and specific life events. Copies of the registry are available for $10 each from the Council Office in Shawnee. We hope to publish a new print version in the fall of 2013.
Registration forms can be picked up at the Archives or downloaded (Miners Registry Form) and either dropped off at the Archives or mailed to: Little Cities of Black Diamonds Council, PO Box 128, Shawnee, Ohio 43782. For more info please call 740-394-3011.
