Marie Paradis And The French-Canadian Connection: Quebec’S Impact On The United States, Anne Midgley 2017 American Public University System

Marie Paradis And The French-Canadian Connection: Quebec’S Impact On The United States, Anne Midgley

Saber and Scroll

There are far fewer studies on French-Canadian immigration to the United States than on that of other immigrant populations. Yet a significant influx of French-speakers from Quebec in the mid-nineteenth to early twentieth centuries provided Canada’s southern neighbour with a people already closely tied to the nation—a people who brought their own language and culture to America and provided a substantial boost to Roman Catholicism in the United States. This influx of Canadians to the United States brought a people who had been closely tied to the origin and development of America, and who for over one hundred ...

France To Haiti To Spain To Cuba To America: Immigration Across Cultures And History, Augustine F. Villa 2017 Iowa State University

France To Haiti To Spain To Cuba To America: Immigration Across Cultures And History, Augustine F. Villa

Honors Projects and Posters

Growing up hearing stories about relatives throughout the United States, Carribbean, South America, and Europe, I was unaware of the uniqueness of my family’s journey over the last several generations. Where did my family come from, how far can I trace it back, what factors led to their convoluted multi-generational immigration and how did my grandfather, Fernando Villa, come to know Fidel Castro? In particular, what circumstances surrounded the move from Cuba to the United States and what was the transition like for a first-generation immigrant family?

Research was designed to focus on historical literature and oral interviews with ...

From Rochel To Rose And Mendel To Max: First Name Americanization Patterns Among Twentieth-Century Jewish Immigrants To The United States, Jason H. Greenberg 2017 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

From Rochel To Rose And Mendel To Max: First Name Americanization Patterns Among Twentieth-Century Jewish Immigrants To The United States, Jason H. Greenberg

All Graduate Works by Year: Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

Data was drawn from about 1500 naturalization records from Brooklyn in order to determine the correspondences between the given names featured on passenger lists and their Americanized counterparts. More than three-quarters of surveyed immigrants ...
