Belarus SIG #Belarus ST. ALBANS, A Port City? #belarus

Ruth Kornbluth <rfenko@...>

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
a brother-in-law.
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.
