Major development: our genealogy database is now freely available online

Major development: our genealogy database is now freely available online

August 26th, 2017 0 By Jean-Pierre Proulx

Following our spring survey of our members and registrants on our site, we found that more than two-thirds of respondents were interested in accessing our genealogy database online and that two-thirds were even willing to pay at least $ 10 for access!

We are right to be interested in it. It’s a great bank, as the following data from last June show:

To date, it counts

  • 104053 names.
  • Of this number:
    • 36959 are direct descendants of the 6 Proulx pioneers.
    • 27192 are spouses of these descendants.
    • 39902 are the relatives of the spouses.
  • Distribution of descendants:
    • Prou-Fournier: 23649 (64.0%)
    • Prou-Pinel: 4927 (13.3%)
    • Prou-Pilon: 4155 (11.2%)
    • Préaux-Fleury: 2446 (6.6%)
    • Prou-Gauthier: 1652 (4.5%)
    • Prou-Brunet: 130 (0.4%)

Taking note of this potential demand, effective today, your board has done better: it has decided to offer FREE online access to the database.

The only but essential condition is to be a member in good standing of the Proulx Family Association of America. Not a member yet? Feel free to become one today and enjoy all the rights and privileges of the Association.

Kindly,

Your association.
