Again and again, we find out that visitors register on our website to do research for third parties and even for commercial purposes. We would like to remind you that our subscription is not intended for such searches.
Our work cannot be abused by people who want to make money on the back of our volunteers and our association.
Please take good notice of these conditions of use of luxroots-data, which you find with this link. Thank you.

We come to you to help you find your ancestors

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, January 29th, 2020.
