Scope and content
Sub-sub-series consists of a three-ring binder containing two separate lists: one of Chinese persons entering Newfoundland as immigrants; the other of Chinese persons leaving Newfoundland temporarily or permanently. The first list is a typescript "Register of Persons of Chinese Race Admitted into the Colony of Newfoundland Under the Provisions of the Chinese Immigration Act 6 Edw. VII cap. 2". It lists persons admitted as immigrants under the Newfoundland Chinese Immigration Act of 1906, who were issued identifying NF 63 certificates numbered 1-384, 4 June1910 to 26 March 1949. The register appears to be either a copy of an unlocated original Newfoundland Government document, or a late compilation from unidentified sources, possibly by the Canadian Immigration service after Newfoundland joined Confederation in 1949. The entries are typed on stencilled blank pages in rough chronological order by NF certificate number. There are some gaps. Each entry gives: person's arrival date, name, age, NF 63 number, name of ship by which he/she arrived, birthplace, occupation, amount of head tax paid, and occasionally a case file number (in the Canadian Immigration first Central Registry or CH series). The second is a list of persons leaving Newfoundland temporarily or permanently under Newfoundland C.I.9 certificates nos. 1-436, issued 6 September 1906 to 24 February 1950 and under what seem to be a short series of four Canadian C.I.9 certificates nos. 1-4, issued 5 July 1949 to 24 February1950. The entries are in rough chronological order by C.I. number. Each entry gives: person's name, aliases, age, C.I.9 certificate number, readmission date (if any), birthplace, and date of original entry to Newfoundland.
