Penny, Nancy L.
This thesis is concerned with patterns of first marriage among Polish and Ukrainian residents of the Tolstoi area of south-east Manitoba between 1896, the year of settlement, and 1970. The marriage patterns and changes in the pattern over time are investigated through four variables: religion, premarital residence, ethnicity and age at marriage of both bride and groom. The history of immigration ot the area and subsequent developments are also presented.
