Shellabear/H. Tolman II Railroad Cancel Database

[This is a work in progress, with much data entry still to be done. Once the railroad cancel database is completed, work will begin on putting the insurance cancel reference online. Estimated completion date: unknown.]

This is an interactive version of the Shellabear/H. Tolman II reference of railroad cancels. Clicking on a company below will display a pictoral list of cancels from that company. The number in parentheses after the company name is the number of cancels in the reference from that company.

You can do a cancel text search of the railroad cancel database by entering portion(s) of the non-date cancel text. Spaces and punctuation will be stripped and case is unimportant. This is a great resource if you only have a partial cancel to work with.

This will work best with small uniquely-identifiable portions of the cancel, e.g. "Nashville" rather than "the". Keep in mind that for the sake of brevity, city names were often abbreviated, i.e., a search for "phila" is likely to turn up more results than "philadelphia".

This only searches handstamp and printed cancels, not manuscript cancels.
