REQUEST FOR  EMPLOYEE RECORDS


The PRRT&HS Archives in Lewistown does not have
personnel records of the Pennsylvania Railroad.
There are some other sources which might provide
 assistance in genealogical investigations.

See webpage

 Railroad Retirement Board

for records of 
individuals who worked  in the railroad industry after 1936.

See webpages


Pennsylvania State Archives


or

Voluntary Relief Department

for employee information or the enrollment cards of  
the
Voluntary Relief Department which was an  
insurance program
the PRR began in 1886.
 
Not all PRR employees  chose to
participate  in the Voluntary Relief Program.

For additional information at the Pennsylvania State Archives on Railroad employees, see
the Railroad Employees Page

 

The Pennsylvania State Archives  may not have all the enrollment cards and
there are some research restrictions,  but this source might be worth an inquiry.

 

Temple University -The Urban Archives

Temple Archives contain a variety of boxed records.
It may be a hit or miss research option but again some PRR records do locate here.
