dorareever who comes from coal miners? (109* d) RE: who comes from coal miners? 01 Jun 02

I don't think I have ever had miners in my family.My mother's father worked in a cotton mill and then in a sweets factory,his wife worked in a factory too and was a taylor.My father's father did a bit of carpenter job and then became a barkeep,his wife was an housewife that helped him at the bar such as she had helped her own mother who was a fishmonger. That's my grandparents.Great-grandparents: 1)Mom's side: great-grandfather 1:well-off farmer,then factory working for him too. great-grandmother:mondina which is a woman who worked in the rice fields,then housewife. great-grandfather 2: train conductor,then factory (I see a pattern ther *LOL*!) great-grandmother 2: taylor 2)Dad's side: great-grandfather 1:nightwatch great-grandmother 1: fishmonger great-grandfather 2:carpenter great-grandmother 2: housewife

Before that I guess they were mostly farmers,maybe we have had miners too but that WAS long ago! Sorry if I bore you,but I like talking about my family.
