"The Soundex index is in two series. The first (M1461) covers the years 1895-1924, and the second (M1463) 1924-1954. Each are composed of the individual card manifests (Form 528) arranged according to the Soundex code. Each card represents an abstract of the information found on the original passenger manifest or in the case of Canadian residents what would have appeared on a manifest. The cards also serve as an index to the manifests for non-Canadians. This publication includes the names of people who crossed the border in Washington, Montana, Michigan, New York, North Dakota, and Minnesota, in fact all along the U.S. Canadian border"--Canadian Arrivals, p. 4.

"The Manifests of passengers arriving in the St. Albans District through Canadian Pacific and Atlantic ports, 1895-1954, (M1464 and M1465) provides two types of lists. The traditional passenger lists on U.S. Immigration forms are found as well as monthly lists of names of aliens crossing the border on trains. These monthly lists are arranged by month, [and year] thereunder alphabetically by name of port, and thereunder by railway"--Canadian Arrivals, p. 5.

Some films are faint and may be hard to read or copy.
