      Just wanted to let everyone know that Ancestry.com has
      added the Canadian Border Crossing Records containing more
      than 4 million names of individuals who crossed the U.S.-
      Canadian border between 1895 and 1956.

      In 1895 Canada and USA established a joint inspection
      system. Passengers arriving in Canada who intended to go
      on to United States were inspected by US Officials at the
      Canadian Port of Arrival, then enumerated on US
      immigration lists. Immigrants were also given inspection
      cards which they turned in to US Officials once they were
      on board trains going to United States. Two sets of records
      were created - passenger lists and compiled inspection
      cards.

      These CANADIAN BORDER CROSSING records were microfilmed by
      INS. They cover 1895-1954 and are indexed. They do NOT
      include Canadians before 1906. After September 30, 1906
      both Canadians and non-Canadians are included on these
      lists.

      More information and a link to the online database the St
      Albans (Canadian Border Crossing) Lists is found on Olive
