MNHS holds indexes to employee records from the Great Northern Railway and the Northern Pacific Railway.
Employee index records give basic information such as:
- Employee name
- Employee number
- Job title
- Location (city or division) - Great Northern only
If the person is found in the personnel index for either railway, staff will report whether the Minnesota Historical Society has a more complete personnel record for that employee.
