Subject: Arrived at Port of New York >from Montreal

Am looking for ship's records for my uncle. In his Petition for
Naturalization he says that he emigrated to the United States from
Montreal, Canada on March 13, 1900 and arrived in the US at the port of
"New York" on the 15th. (He could not remember the name of the ship.)
Where, to what port, would a ship >from Montreal in 1900 have taken him
in "New York"? Ellis Island? And how might I find his ship's records?
Thank you.

Dear Michael,
My grandfather took a boat >from Liverpool, England, to Quebec City,
Canada. The next day he took a train to New York City. This info. was in his
naturalization records. He came here >from Rumania in Sept. 1900.
I went to the NARA in Pittsfield, MA, and found the St. Albans index
card which said his ship was the Lake Champlain. Then I was able to find his
passenger list.

If you send me your mailing address, I can send you some pictures
of the building where the Palmer Bros. store was on Main St. in Middletown.
I lost your e-mail address for a while.
