Dear subscribers, dear visitors of our websites, dear friends

The year 2017 looks promising! During the first quarter of our 2016-2017 work, our volunteers have entered details of 36,200 birth records, of 15,292 marriage records and of 4,727 death records making a total of 56,519 records, this making a daily job of 614 records (7/7).

We think that more and more family researchers worldwide appreciate that they can find information about their ancestors from the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and from the Belgian and German border regions in one place. Thus, they do not need to scan half a dozen regional websites or browse through dozens of family books they have to acquire first.

In our neighboring countries, Belgium, France, and Germany, most local or regional genealogists are working on the same database owned by their associations to which they belong. These associations publish the work of their members on their websites or in book form. The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg is an exception. The local and regional researchers of another association continue to work on their personal databases and the profit from the sale of family books go back to their authors. Only the association with its 60 volunteers work together on a common and nonprofit database.

Until January 31st, 2017, we offer, apart from the 10% discount for 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).

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.

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. If you add 7 family members (1924-2017) in our database, then it is possible that you get back a pedigree chart with 1,000 ancestors (10 generations), and this in 10 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
