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 lists of descendants of these ancestors instantly. 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 may 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
this link.

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.

Our next newsletter will be sent on Wednesday, October 26th, 2016.
