Pejepscot History Center's History Happy Hour: The Origins & Cultural Influences of French-Canadian Immigration
Thursday, May 12, 5:30pm,
Pejepscot History Center, 159 Park Row.
The Origins & Cultural Influences of French-Canadian Immigration
We all know that many French-Canadian families came into Maine in large numbers in the 18th and 19th centuries, working in mills and other industries. Brunswick—like Biddeford, Lewiston, and Waterville, among other areas–was one of the largest concentrations of immigrants. But how much do you know about why those families left their homeland, and what being uprooted was like? Like most immigrants, they brought their culture and traditions with them. What were those traditions and how did they continue them in their new home? Digging into both USM’s Franco-American Collection archives, and resources at PHC, the University of Southern Maine’s Franco-American Collection Archivist Anna Faherty will share with us some of the preserved stories about the families who chose to leave and what they carried with them.
