Miscellaneous Camerons In Canadian Border Crossings - Hat Tip To The Olive Tree Genealogy Blog

The tip from the Olive Tree Genealogy Blog Form 30 Border Crossings, 1919-1924, At Library & Archives of Canada, was very helpful. I followed the directions and looked for "Cameron" in the Microform Digitization here. To find what the files held for the "CAMERON" surname, I needed the "T-15264" file online and there were 5,000 cards in that file. The cards are in alphabetical order, but unindexed. An index at was mentioned at the Olive Tree, but I don't have paid access.

Number 1316 indicated the start of the Cameron surname. It was an index card with no personal information included. #1317 was the first "Cameron" card with any real information.

Below is some of the information I've extracted this morning:
