Dear subscribers, dear visitors of our websites, dear friends

Our brochure of 2015 has been updated and republished and will be available on our information stands and at our meetings as from May 1st, 2017 Take a look at it now!

luxroots needs volunteers and subscribers. Our volunteers do a remarkable work to advance our projects so that they can better assist family researchers. We would like to thank our subscribers for their continued financial support to support the future evolution of the Internet presence of this project.
In order to not attract too many genealogists doing research beyond their families, we stopped selling myluxroots points. Instead, we encourage them to join in our projects to enter details of records in our common and non-profit database.
luxroots confirms its leading position in genealogy in Luxembourg If you are not yet among our subscribers, join them now!

- he or she is the descendant in a paternal or maternal line of said grandparent.
The interested party can trace back each generation in the paternal or maternal line to establish whether he or she is the descendant of a Luxembourg grandparent on the date of 1 January 1900.

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!

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.

Our next newsletter will be sent on Wednesday, May 31st, 2017.
