Hi Michelle,

Just to add to your information about your grandfather.   This is the 
voyage information for the REGINA

REGINA    Liverpool, England 1923-05-25 / Belfast, Ireland 1923-05-26    
Quebec, Que. / Montreal, Que. 1923-06-02    (WSD) Dominion Line and 
White Star-Dominion Line

A comment on what Joanna told you about the border crossing record in 1933

This illustrates perfectly how the most misremembered part of a date is 
the actual year !   So when looking for an arrival, don't rely on census 
records, for example.   Most cases are only one or two years off on 
either side of the immigration year ... in this case, even though it was 
only ten years later, it was off by four years!
