Histoiry & genealogy - The centuries-old Proulx

Translation performed by: Gilles Proulx

The Proulx live old!

Long life is a mythical object. As proof, Adam would have died at 930 years and Mathusalem at 969 years! This record has not yet been beaten. Living old is, at least for believers, a blessing from God.

When life expectancy in Quebec is 84 years for women and 82 for men, reaching the age of 100 is certainly a feat. It is also a cause for celebration in families and local communities.

But the Proulx are no exception. They also count their centenarians. Here is a list of them found in the database of the Proulx Family Association of America.
