Canadian Border Crossings Added to Ancestry.com

Border Crossing Records Added to Ancestry.com---for those who may be interested.

Ancestry.com announced the addition of more than 4 million names of individuals who crossed the U.S.-Canadian border between 1895 and 1956. These historical records are the latest addition to Ancestry.com’s Immigration Records Collection, which also includes more than 100 million names from the largest online collection of U.S. passenger lists, spanning 1820 to 1960.

Of course, there are no border crossing records for the time period I need them....1850s-1860s. I would love to know when William Ira Sargent crossed and when the family of Samuel Neill left New Brunswick. Oh well, some things will always remain mysteries.
