The "Association of Descendants of Philippe du Trieux" began in 1981 as a volunteer organization to meet the interest in the Truax/Truex/Trueax and duTrieux family descendants. The association's primary purpose is to help Philippe's descendants keep in touch, research their heritage, and publish member-supplied information.

The association is a not-for profit organization run entirely by volunteers. It has grown through the years and accomplished several major projects. These include publishing a quarterly newsletter, documenting the genealogy and history of the Truax / Truex family, publishing the two-volume 'Thura Truax Hires Manuscripts' (currently out of print), and the recent publication of the five-volume 'Truax/Truex Genealogy Project'.


We are currently in the process of re-organizing the Association and are therefore not accepting new members at this time.

Both members and non-members are welcome to fill out our Truax Query Form and we will check our database to see if we can link you up to 'The Big Tree'.
