Just to add some more information, Laurie is referring
To the microfilmed cards that NARA has for people who
Came >from Canada to the US. They are called the St.
Albans Lists but they also have microfilm for Detroit, MI,
Buffalo, NY, Niagara Falls, NY of people entering the US
from Canada.
Hope this is of help to others.

Folks,

Does anyone know of an east coast US point of entry,
other than Ellis Island?

Moderator: The St. Albans Lists document entries across the border from
Canada into the U.S. between 1895 and 1954. St. Albans was one of about =
18
entry points in Vermont. Although these Canadian entry lists are
collectively known as St. Albans records, they also contain records of
immigrants crossing over in Washington, Montana, Michigan, New York, =
North
Dakota, Minnesota, and other points along the U.S.-Canadian border. See
