Free Access – Immigration to the US

Yesterday, I had the post about "Free Access - Immigration from the UK", today there is more news, and it is free access (August 29th to September 5th)to "Immigration to the US". One of the areas to check is the “Border Crossings: From Canada to U.S., 1895-1956”.

I spent the morning working on my grandfather Lester John BLADES from Barrington Passage, Nova Scotia. There were at least 17 trips he made to New York from 1925 to 1935. While in New York, he worked on yachts that travelled around the world, and while in Boston, he worked in factories.

Do you have Canadian ancestors who went to the States looking for work, or ancestors going on vacation to visit their relatives?

If you do, using Ancestry.com until Sept 5 is an excellent way to discover the trips they made from 1895 to 1956.
