Mr. Joseph Proulx was the president of the organizing committee of the Rassemblement des Familles Proulx held in 1996 to mark the 300th anniversary of Rimouski. This event was a great success, gathering more then 600 people and was the seed that sprouted to finally give birth to the Association des Familles Proulx in 2008. In fact, Mr. Joseph helped set up the interim committee in 2006, and was the first to register as a member of the Association when it was founded.

Mr. Jean-Paul Guévin was one of the pioneers of our Proulx Families Association of America, vice-president of our first board of directors and a great collaborator at our 1996 Proulx family gathering in Rimouski when we welcomed over 600 people for the entire weekend.
The Proulx Families Association of America made a special point of highlighting its involvement with the Proulx Families at its annual general meeting in September 2011.
He passed away on January 13th, 2011.

A graduate in medicine from Laval University (1954), Dr. Proulx has devoted himself tirelessly to his patients for over 40 years at his office in Limoilou, at the Saint-François-d'Assise Hospital, at the Roy-Rousseau Clinic and at the Rothmans, Benson & Hedges plant.
Dr. Proulx was president of the Amicale des anciens at Collège Ste-Anne de la Pocatière, where he took his classical course. Upon his retirement, he became passionate about genealogy, particularly that of the Proulx and Aubin family.
From 1999 to 2005, Mr. Pierre Proulx collaborated closely with Mr. Antonin Proulx, first by making a significant contribution to the Dictionnaire des Mariages Proulx, then by conducting intensive joint research to trace the baptismal certificate of the ancestor Jean and information on his family.
A trip to France in 2001 was unsuccessful, but the research continued and was subsequently successful. The results of his work were published twice in 2003 and 2004 in L'Ancêtre, a journal of the Société de généalogie de Québec, and were awarded first prize in the same journal in the fall of 2005.
He passed away on January 13th, 2017, in Quebec City.
