the author Romain GASPAR at a price of 70 euros.

We regret to announce the death of our subscriber Robert ASSA from Esch-sur-Alzette. Our sincere condolences to his family.

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!
How to link a death notice I found on with the record of the deceased person in luxroots? See our Demo-Video. (We suggest to open the video with the Firefox Browser.) Check the list of the last uploaded pictures by our subscribers and volunteers!

Contact other luxroots users in order to work together on a common family name. 5,000 luxroots users have already given their consent.

Our next newsletter will be sent on Wednesday, September 25th, 2019.
