I have a railroad related question I hope you can assist me with. Before my ancestor worked for the railroad in New Hampshire, he was employed by the Canadian National Railway. I tried a number of years ago to obtain his records but had no luck. Can you suggest a way to do this?
On occasion a question will often lead to me learning something beneficial to my own genealogical research. After consulting with a Canadian research colleague I found out that Canadian Railway employees are now online via the Library and Archives Canada. I was able to locate an employment record for my great-grandfather Thomas William Clark with the Moncton branch of the C.N.R. from 1898-1941, as well as employment for my grandfather James Albert George Lambert for a few months in 1920. I hope the following database will be beneficial to you as well:
