What is another great thing about nouvelle france other than the husbands?
The maternity ward, at hotel dieu, there are places specifically for women to give birth.
How bad are the winters?
They are long, harsh and dark, it is preferable to be a village girl and strong otherwise you might catch a cold and death was very common.
How did getting a husband work?
Well every so often a young man would come and ask for (usually) a village girl and I would get to ask him questions like, what was their financial situation, land and profession. So I got to pick a husband that was well off so life was easier.
What happened when you arrived in nouvelle France?
I was brought to a dormitory style building and taught practical skills and chores. For me, it took around 4 to 5 months but if you were around the age of 14-16 it took a little over 15 months
Are you better off here than in France?
It is wonderful, after so many wars, my chances of getting husband were getting lower and lower, especially since I didn't stop aging. People are also much chipper and upbeat about their future here.
