Canada to North Dakota: You may hold the golden key.
...
Do you know of where I might find a listing of ships carrying
passengers >from through Canada to a North Dakota port in 1880 or
thereabouts?
You could take a boat up the Red River >from Winnipeg, but how would
you get to Winnipeg? The most likely way for an immigrant to get
to North Dakota through Canada around 1880 might be to take a ship
through the Great Lakes >from southern Ontario to Duluth, and then a
train to North Dakota. Or possibly he originally settled in Western
Canada and later moved to North Dakota.
