Railroad Retirement Board
The Railroad Retirement BoardThe U.S. government created a special retirement fund for those people involved with the nation's railroads. This fund is administered by the Railroad Retirement Board.
If you are interested in information about railroaders among your ancestors, files for all railroad employees are found only at the headquarters office of the Railroad Retirement Board. Among the records are detailed employment records, places and dates of assignment and "Notice of Death and Statement of Compensation". You may learn more about your ancestor and his/her employment history through this route than you might otherwise have been able to ferret out on your own.
