The Border record dated March 24th 1917, for his March 15th crossing, was
:: St. Albans District manifest records of aliens arriving from foreign
contiguous territory :: which shows Abram crossing from his father in
Alberta INTO the US, going to Valdosta GA to his sister Rosie Ruben. He
was not going back into Canada.
I see where he states that he'd first arrived in the US Nov 1910 at
Baltimore from Bremen (normal POA for that vessel), however, the November
BRANDENBURG sailing was from Bremen to Philadelphia.
As he indicates that he was only in the US before during the month of
November 1910, then seems he was destined to Canada right after his 1910
Reel # Ship Name Shipping Line
T-4690 BRANDENBURG (NGL) North German Lloyd's / Norddeutscher Lloyd,
Departure Information Arrival Information
Bremen, Germany 1910-11-03 Philadelphia, PA 1910-11-17
This microfilm record of Canada destined passengers is now scanned and
online here ...
...however, the one page manifest shows only one listed on the page as a
BRANDENBURG passenger and it isn't him. He must have _landed_ in the US
and migrated to Canada .. maybe on the 30th Nov. as he states on the border
The Philadelpia manifest in 58 pages long, but a passenger search (on Steve
Morse search form) doesn't show anyone of that name on the Brandenburg
although he might be hiding in plain sight. Maybe he misremembered the
name of the ship he arrived on . . it may have been for another family member ?
