Will give you a lot of information about mining and the conditions the miners lived in.

That's an interesting site; thank you for the link. I had a relative who died in East Poorhouse, Dundee, but there is no mention of this on the site. She died in 1916 and her widower was listed as a jute mill worker but also as a soldier. Anyone have any information on this place? Thanks.
