Dear subscribers, dear visitors of our websites, dear friends

During the 54 days since January 1st, 2018, our volunteers made a remarkable score with the input of the details of 40,000 records of the parish registers and/or from the Civil Registers i.e. 740 records per day (7/7) namely 27,000 birth/baptism certificates, 7,000 marriage certificates and 6,000 death certificates. You will not find anything comparable in the Greater Region. Today the luxroots database holds the details of more than 1,710,000 unique records entered on the basis of copies of documents:

Our website, where you can publish your GEDCOM file for free, after adding/updating the files of Vic HILGER and Claude SCHILTZ now holds 92 trees with 263.000 people. Give us yours and we will publish it for free on this site..

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.

Learn more about genealogy in general and the luxroots projects in particular at our information booths & meetings. Ask for your Din A3 form of a pedigree chart over 5 generations.

A big thank you to the officials of the Archives of the City of Luxembourg for putting online the PDF with the registers of the parishes of the City of Luxembourg (Garnison, Hollerich, Merl, Saint-Michel, Saint-Nicolas, Saint-Jean, Saint-Udalric, Weimerskirch).

Contact other luxroots users in order to work together on a common family name. 4,400 luxroots users have already given their consent.

The declaration of re-acquisition must be made before a civil registrar by 31 December 2018 at the latest. ...
