(US) MidWest Genealogy Center Launches New Resource of Index National Railroad Pension Records #general


Jan Meisels Allen
 

The Midwest Genealogy Center has launched a new research source: free index
to 1.5 million National Railroad Pension Records. This collection is being
offered in association with the National Archives and Records Administration
(NARA). It is available >from the Genealogy Quick Look >from the Midwest
Genealogy Center in Independence MO. You can access the Genealogy Quick Look
at: http://www.mymcpl.org/genealogy and clicking on the "Genealogy Quick
Look" link located on the right side of the screen . Remember this is for
the index to the records, not direct access to the records. To access the
records directly you have to request them >from the National Archives. The
information on the index assists in finding the correct record. In addition
to having the first and last name of the retiree it helps if you have date
of birth and date of death. The records are located in the Atlanta branch of NARA.

To learn more about the U.S. Railroad Retirement Board, an independent
agency of the executive branch of the U.S. government go to:

Thank you to UpFront with NGS for informing us about this new free access resource.
