Dear subscribers, dear visitors of our websites, dear friends
We hope your year 2018 if off to a good start. In any case, we wish you good health, and good research with luxroots.
Thanks to luxroots, the reading of the records, written by hand, in French, in Latin, in most cases in old German writing by a secretary or a priest who did not always write nicely, was never easier than today. Indeed, luxroots volunteers enter essential details of these records in our database, and their work helps you to easily decipher your records.
For the past year, our genealogy group broke all records: more than 225,000 records (616 records per day 7/7) including 150,000 births, 44,000 marriage and 30,000 death records were analyzed and entered into our database. The luxroots.com database currently contains details of nearly 1.7 million birth/baptism, marriage and death records.
11,451 unique people from 68 countries visited luxroots.com during the year 2017: Luxembourg (59.05%), United States (10.73%), Belgium (8.54%), France (7.51%), Germany (4.55%), Great-Britain (3.83%), Brazil (1.70%), Canada (0.50%) and 60 more countries (3.49%) (source: Google Analytics)

For your searches, you do not need to have a special genealogy program, neither free nor paid. Through the myluxroots transactions, more than 400 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, it is possible to 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. ▲
