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

Dear subscribers, dear visitors of our websites, dear friends

If you want to start or complete your family search, we invite you to visit us at the Genealogical Days of Luxembourg and the Greater Region organized under the patronage of the Ministry of Culture and the Municipality of Hesperange during the weekend of October 5th to 6th at the Centre Nicolas Braun in Hesperange (Saturday from 1 to 7 pm, and Sunday from 10 am to 1 pm).
Up to 12 luxroots associates are waiting for you to help you in your family search.

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, 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.
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.

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

Our website, where you can publish your GEDCOM file for free, now holds 104 trees with 322,000 people. Give us yours and we will publish it for free on this site.
If your Gedcom file (containing 2,000 people or more) has not or will not be published on another website in Luxembourg, we will credit your account with
1,000 myluxroots points.

Romain GASPAR has just finished a new book. In 12 chapters, he presents on more than 450 pages the photographic memory of Nicolas MOLITOR of Bigonville. The book contains more than 700 photos of the region and is available at
the author Romain GASPAR at a price of 70 euros.

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, October 30th, 2019.
