Jalbert Family Orchestra, Lewiston-Auburn, ca.1920

Contributed by Franco-American Collection


The children of Arthur and Celina Simard Jalbert are, from left, Fern, Germaine, Conrad, Judy, Gertrude and Gabriel.

Like many Franco families, the Jalberts were musical. Celina Jalbert saw the band as a way to further her children's education. Family bands in Franco-American families were common, and ranged from providing entertainment at home to performing publicly.

Louis Jalbert, the future "Mr Democrat" of Maine, though not pictured here, also played drums in the group with his siblings.
