A Canadian Family

First Nations, French Canadians & Acadians

Reader Query: Proulx (Canada to U.S.)

Looking for information on Alice Proulx (b. 1887; possibly an older sister Maud or Maude; immigrated to the US in 1890, naturalized 1904;) both parents from Canada. My dad, her great-grandson, is still alive and would greatly appreciate the information. Terry Waltz

Suggestion

I di not find anyone who is conclusively related to you in the Quebec and Ontario records that I can access at the moment. Your best bet would be to locate the border crossing papers at   BMS2000  as they would have crossed as a family. I don’t presently have an account. I think you can get a temporary free one.

My Notes

Using the BMS2000 I did not find any Alice Proulx born in 1887 in Quebec – although there are many that were born in a five year range. Obviously none of these records are conclusively connected to you but here they are:

In a second search for a Maude(e) Proulx born in that approximate time period, I found only one. I opened the record and this is the information:

Note

This would fit the time period to be an older sister of your Alice Proulx – however I could not find any other children for the couple Jules Proulx and Marguerite Tremblay.
