Dear subscribers, dear visitors of our websites, dear friends asbl has just passed the 1,000-member milestone due mainly to the continued support of subscribers of the luxroots genealogy project. The database now contains 1.3 million people entered on basis of birth/baptism records. More than 50% of these people are linked by 185,000 marriage records.
We would like to thank all our subscribers and associates for their financial support and their daily work in this project. This allows us to confirm our leading position in the Luxemburgish genealogy. If you are not yet a subscriber,
join us now!

The annual trip of the genealogy group took place on Sunday, June 18th, 2017. 31 members attended. A first step was the annual flea market organized in the small village of books of Redu. After a hearty meal at the Hotel-Restaurant de la Poste in Bouillon, the trip continued with a guided tour of the castle of Bouillon. See the pictures of this tour
via this article.

Details of more than 5,000 death records of the municipality of Hosingen for the period 1810 to 1923 were entered by our volunteers Henriette HEILES and Christiane KRIER-PETERS.
This allows us to present a statistic though sad about the ages of the deceased persons during this period. As you can see from the graph, there are almost 40% of births (stillborn included) that do not reach the school age. 19 people reach 90 years or more, the oldest person dies at 98 years.

As soon as the details of all death records 1798-1923 of this municipality are entered, we are going to present you a statistic on the evolution of the age of the deceased persons over decades.

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 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.
