Dear subscribers, dear visitors of our websites, dear friends


During the month of November 2016, our group participated with an information booth at the Day of Local History in Mertzig and at the Walfer Bicherdeeg. Many people visited us to know more about our project and to get help in search for their ancestors. 30 new subscribers joined us and we thank them for their support of our project. If you need help or if you have a question, please visit this page.

Today, more than 5,200 visitors from around the world are registered on www.luxroots.com. 850 of these visitors support the luxroots projects! If you are not yet among these people, join them now!

Many thanks to the Luxembourg American Chamber of Commerce who published an article about our project in their
Fall edition.

We thank also our subscriber Erich SINGER for his video about the Genealogy Days of Luxembourg and the Greater Region 2016. The next Genealogy Days of Luxembourg and the Greater Region take place on the weekend from September 30th to October 1st, 2017 in Hesperange.


Until December 31st, 2016, we offer, apart from the 10% discount for luxroots.club members, a special 40% discount on our PDF documents with details of births/baptisms of a certain family name. Check the specimen list (the STEINFORT family name).

A new associate, Diane KREMER from Esch-sur-Alzette, joined our team of volunteers and is working on the baptisms of the parish of Esch-sur-Alzette.
Let us build together the genealogy tree of Luxembourg! luxroots is the genealogical association in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg whose volunteers do not work on personal databases, but enter data online directly to the non-profit luxroots-database.
That's why working together makes us so powerful. If you are able to analyze records of civil registers or even of parish registers, and you want to be part of a dynamic team of volunteers as part of the cross-border and non-profit project, please contact us!
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.

Learn more about genealogy in general and the luxroots projects in particular at our information booths & meetings:

Through the myluxroots transactions, more than 300 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

Our next newsletter will be sent on Wednesday, December 21st, 2016.
