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

Dear subscribers, dear visitors of our websites, dear friends

As of May 19th, 2019, the luxroots volunteers have entered the details of
2,000,000 records of parish and civil registers 1600-1923.
For this 2nd million, we needed less than 4, 5 years vs. 10.5 for the 1st million.
Apart from 25,000 baptisms (from the parishes of Grevenmacher and Luxembourg-Saint-Nicolas), the details of all the baptisms and births 1600-1923 (of which documents are available online) are entered in our database. If you are looking for someone born in Luxembourg, Esch-sur-Alzette, Grevenmacher, Differdange, Diekirch, Mersch, Remich, Dudelange, Echternach, Diekirch or anywhere in Luxembourg, you should find details at In principle, what you do not find at luxroots, you probably won't find anywhere!
Some 35,000 acts of marriage before 1800 in central-eastern Luxembourg remain to be entered and we hope to complete this work by the end of 2020. (Click on the graphs to enlarge.)


If one speaks almost every day of harmonization in the EU, one is still far away from harmonization of the delays of communicability of the archives of the Civil Registers which varies considerably for Luxembourg and its direct neighbors countries. For this reason, we will again ask the Government to amend the Luxembourg legislation by proposing to rally it to the recently amended Belgian legislation.‘Delays

We regret to announce the death of our subscribers: Arsène STREVELER from Surré and François WUNSCH from Luxembourg. Our sincere condolences to their families.

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!
