Bracero Program in Texas, Rail Road workers entering : LUSENET : Southern Railway : One Thread

I am trying to locate record(s) of my grandfather(s) one or both entering the USA by way of working in the above mentioned program. I would like to receive some history and listing of people entering Texas and duration of time worked for the RR. Please reply ASAP. Thank you.

I think you may want to ask your question in the Southern Pacific Historical Society's "Newsletter". I suspect your grandparents probably worked for the Southern Pacific or one of its subsidiaries. They can be accessed through the National Model Railroad Association web site under "Historical Societies". Good luck.
