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


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:

Namesort descending Date Location
Alice Laura Marie
1888 St-Pie-de-Guire, Yamaska, QC, …
M. Alice Aurore
1890 Portneuf, Portneuf, QC, Canada
1886 Sherbrooke, Sherbrooke, QC, Ca…
M.Geneviève Alice
1885 Montréal (Pierrefonds), Ile-de…
Marie Louise Alice
1886 Nicolet, Nicolet, QC, Canada
Marie Rose Marguerite Alice
1890 Deschambault, Portneuf, QC, Ca…
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:

Marie Bertha Maud

Father Proulx


Mother Tremblay


Godfather Parayre


Godmother Gervais


Sex Birth Baptism



Parish Location County Province Country






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.
