(SMITH) Alice Zemp's border crossings

Before officially immigrating to the United States, Alice Zemp visited several times. From her home in Alberta, she traveled to Utah to see her sister, Cleo.

Records of her border crossing can be found on Apart from naming her parents, traveling companions, and destination, the documents also list fun details such as height (5 ft 1.5 in), distinguishing marks (wears glasses), father's Canadian naturalization date (Oct. 1927), and her LDS blessing date (Jul 5, 1925).

I've attached the images below for your perusal. A map of the locations mentioned is at the bottom. Enjoy!

This immigration card gives information about 2 of Alice's siblings'
admission as US citizens. It also provides information about Alice's
blessing in the LDS Church.

This immigration card includes information about Alice's father's Canadian naturalization.

The map below shows Alice's border crossings in 1940 and 1945.
Babb and Sweet Grass were ports of entry in Montana.
Lethbridge and Raymond are in Alberta, Canada.
Ogden and Spanish Fork are in Utah.
