Occasions to get together with neighbors: Sunday and holidays visits, attending family special events like christenings and weddings. Work-bees to do some work together. Home schedule: early to bed (before 8 pm, if 9 pm - that was very late), early to rise (6-7 am) to have breakfast and go to school. There was no radio to listen and too dark to read. Spare time for children: &quot ; to horse around,&quot ; also horse-riding. Almost no spare time for adults: sitting down and talking, neighbours visits as well. bees (social events) ; farming ; friends ; holidays ; home ; neighbors ; work at home 53.532689, -113.506362 17 Interview location: Edmonton, Alberta 252 Ethnicity and cultural groups Metis as neighbors, communication with them, inviting them for family events. Ukrainian new-comers in the community, and relationships with earlier settlers. Ethnic self-identification as Ukrainians and/or Austrians (second for the first generation filling out formal forms and documents), also as Galicians and/or Bukovynians, where the latter two were most often rather than Ukrainian. Anne's mother was from Bukovyna, and father from Halychyna. Sometimes the term &quot ; Galitsiany&quot ; was used.
