I finally found my grandmother's manifest after searching for about 5 years.
She was >from Baranaviche in Belarus (Minsk). She arrived via Canada and St.
on Jan 5, 1903. Her name was mis-transcribed in a way which was what made it
so difficult to find her. She arrived with four stepchildren, her child and
They were headed for NYC to be with her husband, David Poczipoff.
I would like to know what the procedure would have been for persons entering
thru Canada. Was St. Albans a port city? How did the new arrivals get to
NYC? Was it by train >from Canada?
Thanking anyone who might make this clearer to me.
