Working together on genealogy for the future

and for the neighboring regions in Belgium and Germany

now with the details of 1,922,000 records

Our February 2019 Newsletter (our newsletters of the last 12 months)

Dear subscribers, dear visitors of our websites, dear friends

Public interest before personal interest
is the motto of the luxroots genealogy group whose more than 60 volunteers enter the details of births, baptisms, marriages and deaths records in the association's online database.
Without a special authorization, the luxroots data are not available to feed databases, websites, genealogical work for third parties, which pass beyond the genealogical research of the family of the subscriber.
The use of our data for commercial purposes (search for ancestors, heir research, ..) is not permitted without a special permission.

Genealogy is a very nice hobby, but sometimes it becomes commercial. The board members of the luxroots associations as well as our luxroots associates are not working in genealogy to make money. We hope that the members of board of other genealogical associations in the region have the same approach. Before joining an association and before submitting your data to an association, first ask if the members of board do not use your data for personal business purposes.

The luxroots association explores documents from the past to preserve them for the future.
Join the great (jigsaw)puzzle of Genealogy in Luxembourg and their border regions by analyzing records of civil and parish registers and entering the details of these records in the luxroots database. A useful, informative and exciting hobby awaits you.
After entering the birth and marriage records 1798-1923 for Luxembourg, of more than 90% of baptism records before 1798 and 40% of the marriage documents before 1798 luxroots turns more and more to the Belgian, German and French border regions.
The details of more than 376,000 birth records and 36,000 marriage records are already recorded for these regions.

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. 4,400 luxroots users have already given their consent.

Our next newsletter will be sent on Wednesday, February 27th, 2019.
