The site is a one-person, spare-time operation, and all suggestions, corrections and additions are welcome. http://www.unionancestors.co.uk/index.htm.

Single or Return - the official history of the Transport Salaried Staffs' Association refers to the history of the Railway Clerks Association in Ireland where a branch was formed in Belfast in 1904, one in Londondonderry was opened in 1906 with the assistance of W. P. O'Doherty who joined around the Belfast branch was formed and another formed in Dublin in 1908. The Association's name had been changed in 1905 to the Railway Clerks' Association of Great Britain and Ireland. http://www.tssa.org.uk/about/single-or- ... pter05.htm Records for people who worked on the railways in Northern Ireland are held at PRONI which is located in Balmoral Avenue. Joseph Lecky's book titled Records of the Irish Transport Genealogical Museum may help you but if you get stuck in searching for guys who worked for the railways try the Railway Ancestors Family History Society.
