Library and Archives Canada

Posted by: Jan Meisels Allen

The Library and Archives Canada released a collection of 121,000 images of  new immigration records for people who passed into Canada from United States border posts between 1908 to 1918 and 1925 to 1935. There were many unmanned border posts between the two countries during this period. Therefore, it was possible someone migrated from the United States to Canada without formally declaring themselves to the Canadian government during this time period.These are browseable images. Please note that this is not a database, therefore the images are not searchable by keyword.
