by Tom Pelissier
with illustrations by Nancy Haver.
An estimated 900,000 French Canadians immigrated to the United States between 1840 and 1930. In the spirit of Hadley's 350th anniversary, author Tom Pelissier compiled this short history of Hadley's French Canadian population, drawn in large part from research into his own family's history and roots here. There is special emphasis on the period between 1860 and 1920, at the height of French Canadian immigration to the Valley.
