Free Index to Records From the US Railroad Retirement Board

The Midwest Genealogy Center, part of the Mid-Continent Public Library in Missouri has put online a free index to pension records from the US Railroad Retirement Board. This is a rather extensive collection, consisting of some 1.5 million records.

The Railroad Retirement Board, is an independent agency of the US government that was intended to administer retirement benefits to the country’s railroad workers. It was formed in 1935. 

Only railroad workers who have been deceased for more than seven years will be included in the index.
