and for the neighboring regions in Belgium and Germany

the largest genealogical association in Luxembourg.

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

Dear subscribers, dear visitors of our websites, dear friends

We welcome the 127 visitors who have registered since the last newsletter of which 60 are now supporting the project with a subscription. This result was achieved by our presence during the family research day in Hupperdange, during the photo exhibition in Kopstal, at the Walfer Bicherdeeg and following the articles published by lEssentiel and the Tageblatt as part of the research of Luxembourgish ancestors by our subscriber Gilles BLEY about the world famous footballer Antoine GRIEZMANN.

With over 1.300 subscribers and associates, luxroots confirms its leading position in genealogy in Luxembourg far exceeding the overall number of members of other genealogical associations of Luxembourg.

Public interest before personal interest
is the motto of the luxroots genealogy group whose more than 60 volunteers enter the details of the records in the association's online database. The luxroots data are not available to feed databases, websites, genealogical work for third parties, which pass beyond the genealogical research of the family of the subscriber. The use of our data for commercial purposes (search for ancestors, heir research, ..) is not permitted without a special permission.
Genealogy is a very nice hobby, but sometimes it becomes commercial. The board members of the luxroots associations as well as our luxroots associates are not working in genealogy to make money. We hope that the members of board of other genealogical associations in the region have the same approach. Before joining an association and before submitting your data to an association, first ask if the members of board do not use your data for personal business purposes.

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.

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.

Lists of the census 1766 under Maria Theresa are now available for the majority of German localities, formerly until 1815 in the Duchy of Luxembourg. You find them
under this link.

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, December 18, 2019.
