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

Dear subscribers, dear visitors of our websites, dear friends

Recently, Georges EICHER had invited at his 70th Anniversary and the 15th anniversary of the luxroots project at the Restaurant des Ardennes in Hoscheid. 30 volunteers were present. Instead of gifts, the present and excused volunteers participated with almost 1,600 euros to our luxroots Charity project. The registered people of our website can visualize the photos of this evening with this link.

32 members took part in the annual luxroots tour which took us to the cities of Saarburg and Trier. Registered people can consult pictures of this tour with this link.

We continue the pedigree charts of personalities:

We come to you to help you find your ancestors
You are part of an association whose members are interested in family research, local history? Then plan a meeting, and we will come for free and without commitment for a presentation on genealogy in general and the luxroots project in particular. Contact us by message or by phone. +352 2799 4713

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, July 31st, 2019.
