Allegheny County Pennsylvania - Coal Mine Index
INDEX  B
[This listing of coal mines and coal companies has been researched and complied from various sources by Raymond A. Washlaski, Historian: newspaper articles, Pennsylvania Bureau of Mines Reports, county histories, township histories, Pennsylvania Geological Survey reports, topographical maps, personnal accounts of coal miners, etc., etc.]
Very few coal company employee records exist today.  Most Coal Company employee records have been lost or destroyed after the mines were closed. If you have mine records or know of the location of coal company employee records please let us know.

Your help is needed to preserve our coal mining heritage.
Please donate any mine records, mine maps or copies of them, pictures of the mines, pictures of miners, stories about the miners, mine memorabilia, books on mining, or tax deductable monetary donations to:

[Located on Lick Run, on the West Side Belt Railroad.]
[Broughton. This settlement is ten miles from Pittsburgh. In 1898, the first families, Kirk and Bregar, came here from Celje. G. M. Kirk opened a store in 1904, which is now one of the largest. As Mr. Anton Demsar tell me, currently there are 370 Slovenes in the settlement, with 64 families, 29 of whom have their own homes. Except for the two merchants, the rest are involved in mining coal.
The Slovenes have a church together with other nationalities and go to Bridgeville for Confessions. There are four societies. The largest society is that of St. Barbara #17 with 340 members and its own hall. It has a net worth of $5,000.

Burdine, Charties, Allegheny Co., PA
[Burdine. The Slovenes who settled in this township came in 1887 from Trbovlje, Predoslja and Domzale. Among the first were M. Rajner, T. Lenk and P. Serak. All are coal miners except I. Dolenc who has a store. Mr. F. Ferlan reports that there are 52 families and 100 individuals here. Forty-three of these have their own homes. They go to church in Bridgeville. Church life is "exemplary" as the children are taught their Catechism by a pastor in Bridgeville. They also have their own school, but there are still too few young people.

This is the headquarters of the first Slovene Society in Pennsylvania, the Society of St. Joseph #21 of the Kranjsko Slovenska Katoliska Jednota, KSKJ. It was founded on 2 February 1892 by F. Frelan, L. Tratnik and others. Currently, it has 250 members. Besides this society, there are also the Society #4 of the Kranjsko Slovenska Katoliska Jednota, KSKJ, and St. Barbara Society #50. The "Reading and Educational Society" deals with education. This settlement has its own "Slovene Home", which supposedly cost $8,000.  {from Rev. J.M. Trunk text published originally in 1912 Part 8, History of Slovene Communities.}.]
