"Peter Gossage uses family-reconstitution analysis, drawing on local parish registers and manuscript-census schedules, to focus on marriage, household organization, and family size in the context of social and economic change in Saint-Hyacinthe, Quebec. His interpretation of the data is that family formation in Saint-Hyacinthe was profoundly affected as couples adjusted to the new urban, industrial setting. Gossage demonstrates that demographic behaviour was increasingly differentiated by social class, with distinct marriage and fertility patterns emerging among bourgeois and proletarian families."--Jacket.
