Would I look under St. Alban's, Vermont for Windsor to Detroit records? If
so, that would explain why I haven't been able to find them.
Thanks for the info.

There are two collections, of course, from Canadian and American ledgers.
Both sets of records are primarily taken at land ports (Coutts, Windsor,
Niagara Falls, Buffalo, Cornwall, Emerson, Sweetgrass, Sarnia, Kingston and
some from parts that are now "extinct", e.g. Pinhorn, Alberta and Twin
Lakes, Alberta. There are some sea port records as well (Nanaimo, Victoria,
Yarmouth, and Ocean Falls). It's probably a good guess that these records
are not listings of passengers on overseas voyages.
The Public Archives of Canada and the United States Department of
Immigration and Naturalization have microfilmed records of these crossings.
For United States into Canada movement, the years covered are only from
1908-18. The originals are held in Ottawa at the National Archives and what
you see on the film are "originals" (these are by ports). For movement from
Canada into the United States, records were kept from 1895-1954 (these are
by soundex)(LDS has these records, look under St. Alban's, Vermont).
