Digitization of Texas South-Eastern Railroad Timebooks

Friday, January 20, 2017

As part of The History Center's efforts to make more of its reseources available online, volunteers and staff have been working to digitize the Texas South-Eastern Railroad's timebooks.  This collection of records is a valuable tool for genealogists, railroad historians, and social historians, among others, as it contains the names, days and hours worked, rates of pay, and deductions for TSE employees from 1909.  Each timebook will be scanned and converted to PDFs, which will be divided into managable file sizes to make them easy to download.  Volume 1, December 1909 - June 1911 is now available in the collections section of our website or by following this link.  If you have any questions about this or any of our collections, please contact The History Center at 936-829-3543 or archivist Emily Hyatt at
