Immigration Through Winnipeg Under Maiden Name #canada


Carl Kaplan
 

I was able to use a record match from the Minsk Archives to find nephew (and his wife) of my great-grandmother, here in the U.S. The wife came in 1908, they married in 1910, and they lived in New Jersey 1920 onwards. All of this is confirmed by new cousins. HOWEVER, I just found an immigration record for the wife under her maiden name in 1916 (3 children later) arriving in Winnipeg, Canada, with a final destination of Chicago. They were not, and never, divorced. Any ideas about why this might be? Was she "sneaking" across the border? How would one arrive at the Port of Winnipeg in 1916? Thanks in advance.
