the largest genealogical association in Luxembourg.

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

Dear subscribers, dear visitors of our websites, dear friends, the largest family research project in the Greater Region, is looking for additional volunteers to enter the details of birth records for the Eifel region, the Belgian German-speaking region and the Belgian provinces of Lige and Luxembourg.
Let us build together the genealogy tree of the Greater Region! 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 by
mail or phone +352 2799 4713 and participate in one of our information meetings:
- Tuesday, August 20th, 2019 from 4 to 6pm at the mill of Beckerich
- Tuesday, August 27th, 2019 at 7:30pm at the Centre Nicolas Braun in Hesperange.

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 which they plan to analyze and enter the details in the luxroots-database.

We continue the pedigree charts of personalities:

We regret to announce the death of our subscribers: Gerd MAUSEN from Olfen(D) and Remy GOERGEN from Dudelange. 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!

Our next newsletter will be sent on Wednesday, August 28th, 2019.
