Dear subscribers, dear visitors of our websites, dear friends

The long autumn and winter evenings are ideal to start genealogy, this beautiful leisure of searching for the ancestors.
With easier access to authentic copies of documents as well as published data of already analyzed documents on websites, the door is wide open for all citizens.

luxroots is the largest genealogy project of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and neighboring regions which analyzes records of the civil and parochial registers, enters details of these documents into a Internet database and makes this information available to global visitors. Please check our current inventory to see what records are already in our database (sorted by township and parish).

The general meeting of the asbl will take place on October 23th, 2018 at 7:30pm at the Centre Nicolas Braun in Hesperange. All members are welcome. Program of this meeting.

29 members of the family research association luxroots took part in this year's excursion. He started with a guided tour of the St. Maximin Church of Thionville and a short city tour. Lunch was served in the restaurant La Lorraine in Koenigsmacker. Then we went to Manderen with a guided tour of the Malbrouck Castle and the exhibition 'Le Journal de Tintin'. Some pictures of this day.

We would like to thank the people in charge of the National Archives that the put online the documents of the civil registers 1796-1912 of the Luxembourg district, and we look forward to the online documents of Diekirch district for the end of this year. We also suggest the next online publication of the recent decennial tables, censuses and records of justice before 1800.

Please take good notice of the article about genealogy (in French) published in Le Quotidien dated July 26th, 2018.

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.

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!
