Re: [h-cost] early 20th Century Franco-American weddings

2014-01-01 Thread Mary + Doug Piero Carey
Has anyone asked an old priest or nun from the area?  I'll bet somone 
from the diocese office would know.  Or is there a near-by convent?  I'd 
ask at the monastery down the street, but I'm 800 miles away  most of 
the Catholics around here are German, Italian or Irish.

Nope, nary a single reply. It remains a mystery.

 Charlene,

 Did you receive a reply to your question.  I am curious for an answer too.

 I am sorry this is so late with a reply. I changed computers and just got my

 Sorry, this is a bit off-topic, but I'm hoping someone who studies the time
 period can help me.

 While working on my genealogy, I noticed that many of my Grandmother's
 generation married on a Monday (1930s; Biddeford, Maine). I asked one of her
 still-living sisters why that was and she didn't know; that's just the way
 it was done.

 I later found this is a book about the Franco-Americans in Biddeford, Maine:
 Weddings too retained much of their ethno-religious significance for the
 Franco. The wedding was usually held on Monday morning.

 Of course, the author didn't provide any additional information or cite this
 in the footnotes. (One of the faults of the book is the amount of
 information he presents without explanation.)

 Does anyone know why French Catholics in the early 20th century married on
 Mondays?
