Immigration through upstate new York #general


Hilary Henkin <hilary@...>
 

Dear group,
In response to my posting about microfilm for immigration >from Canada to
Rochester, NY, someone asked me what years were covered. When I checked
the answer, I noted the details for the two other films I'd
mentioned. These three films are for immigration >from Canada to New York
through the several small towns on the shared Canada-New York border.

At least for M1480, these are the manifests themselves in index-card form,
and not merely indexes.

M1480
Manifests of alien arrivals at Buffalo, Lewiston, Niagara Falls, and
Rochester, New York, 1902 - 1954.

M1481
Alphabetical Card Manifests of Alien Arrivals at Alexandria Bay, Cape
Vincent, Champlain, Clayton, Fort Covington, Moers, Rouses Point, Thousand
Island Bridge and Trout River, New York, July 1929 - April 1956.

M1482
Soundex Card Manifests of Alien and Citizen Arrivals at Hogansburg, Malone,
Morristown, Nyando, Ogdensburg, Rooseveltown and Waddington, New York, July
1929 - April 1956.

You'll have to do your own research to learn which archives or resources
have these films. They can also be purchased directly >from NARA - check
< www.nara.gov > for details.

This is great information but I think it is worth noting that it does not
point to _all_ lists related to crossings >from Canada to New York State. I
know this because I found my grandfather as a 13 year old entering with his
family at Rousses Point, NY in 1899. That was a conventional US Passenger
List (not file cards) for arrival in Montreal with destination in the US.

I believe it was on a roll of film covering the St. Albans Immigration
District but I don't have the details in front of me at the moment for
confirmation.
