Additional information

This accession is in the form of Chinese immigrant index cards. The index cards are organized alphabetically by surname. They can be used to access the Chinese case files which can be found in various accessions within RG 76. Each index card contains information such as the name of the Chinese immigrant, his/her case file number, a birthdate, and in some cases, the date he/she entered Canada and the date of entry of certain family members. Since the Chinese case files are arranged by file number, the index cards can be used to determine the file number for the Chinese immigrant by conducting a search using the surname. Due to the existence of personal information, these index cards are not open to the public.
