Finding Ancestors in the St. Albans (Canadian) Border Crossing Lists

In 1895 Canada and USA established a joint inspection system. Passengers on ships arriving in Canada who intended to go on to United States were inspected by US Officials at the Canadian Port of Arrival, then enumerated on US immigration lists.

Immigrants were also given inspection cards which they turned in to US Officials once they were on board trains going to United States.

Two sets of records were created - passenger lists and inspection cards. These Canadian Border Crossing (St. Albans) lists were microfilmed by INS. They cover 1895-1954 and are indexed.
