Working For The Railroad….

My grandfather, Seibert Lam died years before I was born so I never had the opportunity to know him. As time goes by I’m slowly learning more and more about him and his life on this Earth.

His occupation for many years was working for the railroad company: Fruit Grower’s Express out of Alexandria, VA. From what I gather his job was working on the railcar doors but I don’t know exactly what he did with them. A few months back I finally came across a photo of the station in Alexandria, although I’m not sure if this was the building he worked in or not.

For as long as I can remember history has always held a special place in my heart. Genealogy has always played a large part in my history research....
