Re: Ancestors who came to Canada and then to the US #general

Depending on where your grandfather crossed into the US, you may want to
check the "Detroit Border Manifest Cards". They document people who
entered the US at Detroit, Michigan. The records are on microfilm also,
and available through the Mormon libraries as well as in some US National
Archives branches. They're organized alphabetically.
If you decide to review them, be sure to check the full width of the
microfilm. The back side of each card is directly next to (across from)
its front side. You may find additional information there.

You also want to be sure you've tried all "spelling variations" of LOME in
the St. Albans lists and considered that the original name may have been
longer, which would generate a different soundex code.

Is anyone else having trouble finding ancestors who came to Canada (I
assume Montreal) and then to the U.S? My grandfather, Harry Lome, is not
on the National Archives St. Albans list. Is there any other obvious
source that I am missing?
