Subject: [GM-L] RAILROAD ... HISTORICAL SOCIETIES (plus MIDDLESEX CANAL)

My best friend lost a grandfather around 1925, and was told that he was
killed in a train accident. The youngest child in this Pacheco family
from Cambridge, MA, was about one year old.
And, my grandmother was always told that her birth mother was killed in a
train accident while traveling ... when she was about one year old. This
would have occurred to a Miss ____ Dexter around 1900. (My research now
shows that this might not have been true, but that her birth mother probably
died during childbirth.)
I just went to www.google.com and put in the words, Railway Disasters.
One of the sites I found was the following:
And it looks like their monthly magazine has had some great articles,
including some great photos.
I also know about this web site:
Does anyone know of any other Railroad Historical Societies which may be of
interest ... to New England researchers?

P.S. There is now a Middlesex Canal Museum:
