This thesis, dealing with the migration and kinship structure of contemporary French Canada, presents the results of eleven months' work by an anthropologist. It is self-consciously written within a certain theoretical framework or tradition, which can be codified under two words: culture and function. In the first place, this means that I expected, throughout doing the work, to find a variation in both structure and character between the French Canadian norm and that of ether societies. This expectation, or assumption, is the core of the cultural approach; ether postulates, such as that culture is learned, follow from the observation of difference.
