Online & On Track: Railroad Indexes and Finding Aids on the Internet (Webinar)

“Learn about online personnel and payroll records, indexes, books, railroad employee and union magazine indexes, inventories of railroad records, indexes of insurance claims, identified photographs of people, trains, and stations, architectural drawings, and links to other free websites and finding aids. Some of these lists give a person’s name, birth date and place, railroad jobs held, and more. An extensive handout gives links to these and many others.”

I recently recorded this webinar for Legacy Family Tree webinars and it’s available in the subscriber library. In case you don’t know, anything to do with railroad records and history is a hot topic with me.

Not a subscriber? It’s an affordable cost for this huge library of webinars. Click here to learn more and start your subscription. You also get access to the syllabus for the presentations.

For this presentation, the syllabus is full of live inks to the material discussed. I am an affiliate of Family Tree webinars and the small percentage I receive from subscriptions allows me a bit extra to help with the costs of researching and updating presentations.

  1. This is great, Paula! Several years ago, I discovered the MN Transportation Museum in St. Paul. The Great Northern Historical Society offices were housed there at that time. (I’m assuming they still are). I have many connections to the Great Northern Railroad – lots of my first generation Irish relatives worked for the GN’s Jackson Street shops, which have been preserved. I believe on Saturdays (when weather permits), they offer train rides for kids and families. A great effort is made there to preserve and restore vintage train cars. They do fantastic work! I highly recommend a visit! It will be time well spent! Very family friendly!
