Dear subscribers, dear visitors of our websites, dear friends

On June 3rd, 2016, the committees of our associations met to confirm the composition of the committes until the next ordinary general meetings, to made a flashback of past activities, and to decide for some future actions. The report of the asbl is available to its members on this page, and members and associates of asbl can check their report on this page.

The committee of the association decided a tour to Avioth-Orval-Neufchâteau. A first invitation was sent to the members on June 10th. Apart from a small contribution, the bus fees and guided tours are taken over by the club. Registration for the 10 remaining places can be made via this form.

Through the myluxroots transactions, more than 150 subscribers and associates have already entered their recent family members to luxroots linking them to the ancestors already entered earlier by our volunteers. A subscriber recently added three members of his family in our database and received in return a pedigree chart with over 100 ancestors (7 generations), and this in 5 minutes, not to mention the ability to create instantly lists of descendants of these ancestors. In Luxembourg, you will find nothing comparable to our project and for this reason, please help us to assemble the large Grand Duchy of Luxembourg genealogy puzzle and the neighboring regions. Check the pedigree charts of Christiane, Hortense, Paulette and Serge. Do the same, we will support you!
Today, you check on the Internet all records of the Civil (~ 1795-1923) and parish registers (~1600-~1815) of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg as well as the notary records 1621-1821 and the 1843-1900 censuses without going to archives or libraries. Follow
