Due to privacy laws, the railroad does not release the records of employees, past or present. Likewise, the N&W Historical Society does not maintain any employee records in its Archives.

Below are links to resources for genealogical research.

West Virginia Vital Research Records

The Railroad Retirement Board will conduct a genealogical scan of its records PROVIDED THAT the retiree is deceased. Cost of this service is $27 whether or not they develop any information. Address requests to:
               Office of Public Affairs
               Railroad Retirement Board
               844 North Rush Street
               Chicago, IL 60611
Including the retiree's social security number will be a big help, assuming they had one.
