Texas Transportation Archive
The Texas Transportation Archive Employee Database Project attempts to “reconstruct” missing or destroyed employee records for railroad companies, steamboat lines, stage coach lines, etc. The database currently has records on approximately 10,000 individuals who were employed by transportation companies or companies that operated their own transportation departments, such as logging and mining companies. These records provide information on employee duties, years worked, vital information, sources of obituaries, etc. The Employee Database covers every region of Texas, and is continually being expanded.
