Additional information

THIS ACCESSION IS IN TWO GROUPS: THE HISTORIC CASE FILES AND THE "F" SAMPLE OF REGULAR CASE FILES.

THE FIRST AND LARGER PORTION (BOXES 1-2) CONSISTS OF AN "F" SAMPLE OF ROUTINE IMMIGRATION CASE FILES CREATED BY VARIOUS CANADIAN IMMIGRATION CENTRES IN THE QUEBEC AND ONTARIO REGION. MOST OF THESE FILES INCLUDE REPORTS PROVIDING PERSONAL INFORMATION SUCH AS AGE, SEX, MARITAL STATUS, RELIGION, PLACE OF RESIDENCE, ETC., AND A BRIEF PERSONAL HISTORY OF THE INDIVIDUAL IMMIGRANT; TRANSCRIPTS OF IMMIGRATION INTERVIEWS HELD BETWEEN IMMIGRATION OFFICERS AND IMMIGRANT; PERSONAL DECLARATIONS OF IMMIGRANT; AND OTHER DOCUMENTATION. SOME FILES CONTAIN MORE DETAILED COMMENTS AND OBSERVATIONS OF IMMIGRATION OFFICERS CONCERNING INDIVIDUAL CASES, LETTERS FROM LAWYERS REPRESENTING IMMIGRANTS, AND RESULTS OF ROUTINE MEDICAL EXAMINATIONS. WHEN IMMIGRANTS WERE DEPORTED, A CONFIRMATION OF DEPARTURE FORM CITING REASONS FOR DEPORTATION IS INCLUDED.

THE SECOND GROUP (IN BOX 1) CONSISTS OF TWO IMMIGRATION CASE FILES SELECTED FOR HISTORIC INTEREST: ONE ON THE HARLEM GLOBETROTTERS BASKETBALL TEAM GENERALLY, AND ON THEIR INVOLVEMENT WITH THE CZECHOSLOVAKIAN STATE DANCE TROUPE; AND ONE ON THE SELF-STYLED ACTING PRESIDENT OF THE SOUTH MOLUCCA ISLANDS.
