Dear subscribers, dear visitors of our websites, dear friends

Visit us at our information booth at the 72 hours of volunteering on Friday, June 3rd, 2016 from 2 to 5pm at RBS à L-5955 Itzig, rue de Contern, 20.
We present our genealogy project to recruit new volunteers and new subscribers to fund our projects.
Read about it the articles in the
Tageblatt (in German) and in Le Quotidien (in French) on June 17th, 2016.

Be a volunteer of the non-profit association, and help us build together the family tree of Luxembourg. In less than 5 years, is able to establish pedigree charts or lists of offsprings up to 13 generations (~1600 to 2020 period) for every person born, married or died in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and even in border areas online and within seconds.
Join a team of over 50 volunteers who have engaged in meaningful and informative work, that is useful for the future. Genealogy has never been easier than today!

You do not need to go to townships or to archives. luxroots makes available to its associates the pictures of the records of a certain township/parish free of charge which they plan to analyze and enter the details in the luxroots-database.
Do not hesitate to participate in this great puzzle of genealogy of Luxembourg by analyzing and capturing the details of the records of your preferred township or parish. Check our inventory of records of townships/parishes
to be analyzed soon or other available documents.
