      Linda, Thanks for your interest in this unfinished page. We have received some funding to develop our research on this topic for an exhibit in early 2013. Check back for more. . .

    Greetings, I am a board member and community historian with the Mexican American historical Society of the Midlands, with an office in Omaha, Nebraska. I was led to your web site by an interest I have documenting the Mexican and Mexican American presence in Nebraska-Kansas-Missouri states. Noticing a comment about an exhibit based on this wonderful slide presentation, is there one to be seen?

    Serving as a Board Trustee of the Nebraska State Historical Society, I am very interested in developing a presentation reflecting the northern migration into the Midlands and resultant population of Mexican laborers along the right-of-way of the ATSF/BN and the Union Pacific Railroads. Your wonderful slide show is a gem and warms the cockles of my heart! Thanks so much for posting this wonderful story. I hope to visit Ottawa in the very near future……..

      Mr. Garcia-Rios–

      Thanks for your kind words about our project. If you will send me your email, I will be glad to share with you a panel of a recent exhibit on railroad workers and some photos of families visiting it.
