Do you have access to Ancestry at home or is there a place you visit? Does anyone know the cost to subscribe to the site?

Hi Yolanda, I have a limited subscription and I pay $119. a year. The Family History Centers no longer have access to Ancestry.com but I was told if you have a library card you can log on at any public library with no charge.
I knew when my Castanon/Caldera family came stateside but was surpised to see they crossed the border more than once. It appears they went across at least 3 times over a 3 year period, that was a surprise. I was also surprised when it said Gr-grandpa Vicente Castanon only had $24. to his name which means they didn't trust the boarder guards and hid their money.! I was told each family group was charged $5. to be deloused!
I had not seen these records before so I thank the group member for making me aware of it being online now.

Linda,
If I'm understanding you correctly you have access at home and can view the border crossing records with your limited subscription to ancestry.

Yolanda,
I have never paid anything for any type of subscription and accessed the border records last night. I also found that my relatives crossed into the US several times in their lifetimes. Alice

Since the 1800's the Department of Commerce, and later the Immigration and
Naturalization Service (INS), were required by Congress to to generate and
maintain records of all alien entrants into the US.

These historical records were filmed by INS (in 1956?) and transferred to
the U. S. National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) and were
transferred to the National Archives on microfilm. Indexes of these records
are kept by Port of Arrival (land or sea)and available for access on the
Internet through their website: http://www.archives.gov

In the case of those who are interested in researching for the existance of
record(s) on any particular entrant from Mexico, you may access their
"Mexican Crossing Records" holdings at
http://www.archives.gov/genealogy/immigration/border-mexico.html

The specific microfilms can be viewed (or ordered by email purchase) at
various NARA regional offices located throughout the US.
I personally find the one at Naguna Niguel, California, to have convenient
visiting hours, --- and their holdings easy to access and photograph on
site.

Saludos and Good Luck with your searches,

Since the 1800's the Department of Commerce, and later the Immigration and

and maintain records on every alien entrant into the U.S. The records were
filmed (in 1956?) by the INS and later transfered to the National Archives

These microfilms are stored and made available for research by the U. S.
National Archives and Records Administration, an it can be reached at
http://www.archives.gov

For those who are interested in locating records of specific individual
entrant(s) from Mexico, you can access the 'Mexican Border Crossing Record'
at http://www.archives.gov/genealogy/immigration/border-mexico.html ---
for a listing of entry ports and dates covered.

The records are indexed by Port of Entry and their microfilms can be viewed
(or available for purchase) at various NARA Regional Offices throughout the
US. Their website above lists their locations.

I personally find their Regional Office in Nagula Niguel, California, with
convenient office hours and easy viewing and photocopying of records.
