The luxroots team has finished entering details of all available birth and marriage records 1798-1923 of Luxembourg
With regard to the baptismal records and the marriages of parish registers (before 1798), we still have to enter some 20,000 baptisms (from parishes in the cities of Luxembourg and Grevenmacher) and some 35,000 marriage certificates, mainly from the center-east region.
The entering of details of the death certificates continues, and for some municipalities in the North, we have already completed the entering of the civil records namely the municipalities of Hachiville (1,491), Hosingen (5,428), Mecher (3,173) and Munshausen (2,583). 51.67% of these 12,675 people were male.

Find quickly your ancestors with luxroots anytime and anywhere. If you are not yet a luxroots-subscriber,
join them now!

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, April 24th, 2019.
