Returning for a Visit in 1926
This is record of a border crossing for William H. Sartorius that was obtained on Ancestry.com. The last name was not read as Sartorius, but I'm pretty certain it is him.
The destination is key--he's headed to Golden, Illinois, where he was from and where he still had family living. At this point in time, his parents were both deceased.
I'm working on an article on William for a future issue of Casefile Clues--concentrating on his homestead papers and a few other items obtained through the gracious assistance of the Alberta Genealogical Society. Stay tuned!
