Most people with Durham ancestors will have a miner or ten in their tree and there is a wealth of records to help you find out more about them. Union records, Coal owners' records and other sources such as local newspapers can all yield useful information about your ancestor and his career in the Durham Coalfield. This online talk will guide you through the records, giving valuable hints and tips along the way.
