What's New? > Railroads

I have been working on transcribing and compiling records of railroad service, so far 23,275 over 6 different main sources, and still adding to the list daily.  The list is searchable here:  ourfamtree.org

A new page is also added on the menu under Places > Railroad Employees, coming from the same information but organized by the name of the railroad, and including the number of Our Family Tree people who have been identified with employment at railroads.

If you have any in your tree and want to link them, go to add an event, choose "Organization", and begin typing the name of the railroad.  Any of the 1,500+ defined so far will come up.

COUNCIL BLUFFS, IOWA HAS BEEN A RAILROAD TOWN SINCE THE MID-100'S.
WE HAVE THE WONDERFUL UNION PACIFIC HISTORICAL MUSEUM IN THE OLD CARNEGIE LIBRARY LOCATED IN DOWNTOWN. PERHAPS YOU HAVE ALREADY HEARD ABOUT THIS.
