I have found the name of Golda Mendelovitsch >from Romania listed on the
"SS Canada" Manifest arriving at Portland Maine January of 1912. Her
final destination is listed as Toronto Canada. Assuming she travelled by
train, (Grand Trunk Railway perhaps) to the Canadian border, where do I
look for her immigration records?

Thanks for your feedback.
I didn't know anything about the Grand Trunk Railway so I googled it. >from
the information at http://collections.ic.gc.ca/cnphoto/english/gt_ang.html
it seems that Montreal would have been the initial destination. At least
it's a good place to start looking. This site
http://www.collectionscanada.ca/genealogy/022-908.005.01-e.html will give
you the film numbers which can likely be obtained through inter-library
loan. Once you have the film it's a matter of going through them frame by
frame.

You could also search the Grosse Ille database
http://www.collectionscanada.ca/genealogy/022-504-e.html which includes
surviving records >from the Grosse Ille quarantine station >from 1832 - 1937

Good luck with your search.
