Notes

Microfilm of originals in the National Archives in Washington, D. C.

Alien Certificates were issued to immigrants upon payment of the required "head tax", or immigration fee, at Vancouver and Victoria, British Columbia, surrendered at Seattle, Washington, between 1917 and 1924. These Alien Certificates served as permits to enter the United States from foreign contiguous territory. All persons entering the United States across contiguous borders were required to submit to an examination prior to entry and those intending to remain permanently were required to pay the head tax.

See additional information at the beginning of the films.

Some of the records are light and faded and may be hard to read.

Some information was microfilmed again as a "retake" and appears at the beginning of the microfilm.

About this record

This screen shows the complete catalog entry of the title you selected.

The Film/Digital Notes contain a description of the microfilm or microfiche numbers. Some family history centers and libraries maintain collections of previously loaned microfilms or microfiche. A camera icon indicates items that are digitally available online.

Generally, catalog entries are written in the same language as the original record they describe.

Reasons why microfilms may not yet be available digitally on FamilySearch.org include:

  • The microfilm may be scheduled for future scanning.
  • The microfilm may have been scanned, but have a contractual, data privacy, or other restriction preventing access. FamilySearch makes every effort to enable access dependent on decisions of record custodians and applicable laws.
