Re: Passenger arrival records


Found the US manifest (below).  When immigrants arrived in Canada for transit to the US they went through the standard process conducted by US immigration agents as they would have if they'd arrived at Ellis Island.  They were issued admittance passes which they then had to present on the train to their US destination. 

Note that the two  families listed above Chawe; Sara Schlissel & ch, and Ester Wiesenfeld & ch, are all from Tarnobrzeg and all going to their husbands at the same address, 340 Hastings.  Pretty good bet these are relatives.
