Travel from Shtetll to Sea Port #ukraine


Herbert Lazerow
 

    It was often not possible for people in Europe to save enough money for their trans-Atlantic passage.  I know nothing about Canada, but in Philadelphia, several "banks" were established that allowed persons in the U.S. to make small periodic payments until enough had been accumulated to enable them to bring their relatives over from Europe.  It was the banks that purchased the transportation, and it may have been the banks that decided the port of departure and the shipping line. Whether each bank had a deal with a particular shipping line, I have no idea.
