Two new projects!

Yesterday we released the Descriptive Lists of Colored Volunteer Army Soldiers 1864 and the California Railroad Employment Records, 1862-1950.


The Descriptive Lists of Colored Volunteer Army Soldiers 1864 is a smaller project including both Enlistment lists and Muster Rolls.  Although this is a smaller project we estimate that there are close to 10,000 names – what a wonderful resource to those with African American descent.

And, the California Railroad Employment Records, 1862-1950 should seem like an old friend.  Although the records may look a little different this project is incredibly similar to our first California Railroad Employment Records project.  You will encounter a large variety of names as there were many immigrant men, and a few women, who worked on the railroads.  Employment records can be a great resource for families who aren’t able to track their ancestors where they should have been.  (Like my ancestors who worked in the oil business.)


Happy keying!
