No doubt some paid their passage, but I'm of the understanding that some parish churches or organizations would provide assistance to domestics in a monetary sense to help them start a new life in Canada. Would anyone know if there was such a system in place or organization in Peterhead at the turn of the century, approx. 1900-1910? I'm given to understand that some organizations would loan them the money on the proviso that a portion of their pay was deducted until such time as the loan was paid back.
Did Peterhead have it's own newspaper in 1910 where "opportunities abroad" were advertised?
