INCLUSION IN THESE LISTS:

Clicking on a Province brings up telegraph, agent, operator, and dispatcher names associated with that province. The names shown on each provincial list is NOT a complete list.

To be included in this railway telegraph genealogical series, please e-mail RGB.

   Photographs can be displayed on my site beside the agent, operator, dispatcher. Please provide all necessary information with any photo images so I may credit them correctly to the source.

DISCLAIMER:

Most of the names appearing on these provincial webpages come from authentic Canadian National, Canadian Pacific, Order of Railroad Telegrapher, seniority lists and biographers in railway magazines, obituaries, and actual contributions from the railway and railway personnel. Even within these railway lists errors occur; example: for many years my uncle is listed as McAlpin when the correct spelling is McCalpin.

No other claim is being made or undertaken here except to Honour the memory of these incredible contributors to Canada, the railway, and to their roles as telegraphers, operators and dispatchers. Mistakes happen - if you see something, please send me an e-gram so it can be corrected and updated. Please note, not everything can and is included on my webpages for obvious reasons.
