Paul Concus writes in part:

Does anyone know what is contained in the St. Albans District Manifest
Records of Aliens Arriving >from Foreign Contiguous Territory: Arrivals at
Canadian Border Ports, Jan. 1895 - June 30, 1924?
I have used these records and found my great-grandmother's arrival on the
SS Lake Superior arriving in Montreal 24 Feb 1902. Since they are federal
lists, they are exactly the same as those for NYC for the same time period.

The records are available on microfilm in the DC National Archives as well.
The series is M 1464 Manifest for Ships Arriving at Canadian Atlantic ports
1895-1924. They may be at NARA (Regional Archives) as well.

Although final destination is given (person/place) There is nothing on them
to indicate how the immigrants got there. Train was the usual means of
transportation >from Montreal to parts elsewhere, as I have seen noted on
naturalization papers of my great-grandfather who arrived in 1899: "Unknown
vessel to Montreal and ch... by rail to New York"
