About this research service:

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. 

Note: many Northern Pacific Railway employee records are available through
