Dear subscribers, dear visitors of our websites, dear friends

The National Archives of Luxembourg are the most important depository of genealogical documents of Luxembourg. On microfilm, you find the civil records ~1795-1923, the parish records before 1800, 10 years tables 1803-1982, censuses 1843-1922/35, justice records before 1800, former and actual newspapers until 2013, and further documents.
In the reading room, you can check notary records from 1581 to 1950 and a great historical library.
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.

The database includes now details of 1,5 million of records (details of 1,250,0000 birth records and 170,000 marriage records).

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.

Which associate is currently working on what ?

Marcel PROBST from Bavigne joined the luxroos team, and works on the death records of the former municipality of Mecher.

Our website, where you can publish your GEDCOM file for free, now holds 83 trees with 236.500 people after adding the file of André LEFEBVRE with 579 people.

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!

A marriage record from Aleppo's quieter times tells us about the marriage of Dominik Karl LECLERC (son of Georges LECLERC) with Adele, daughter of Robert KATIANE and Sophia HAAS from Vindobona (Vienna) on January 26, 1919. Dominik Karl was born on August 23rd, 1890 in Esch-sur-Alzette. The first witness is probably Joseph Emile Adolphe BASTENDORFF, who was born in Diekirch in 1885.

Our next newsletter will be sent on Wednesday, March 29th, 2017.
