Luxembourg, Church Records, 1601-1948 ~ New at FamilySearch

Happy New Year from FamilySearch!! I love how they come out with new databases for Luxembourg at the beginning of a year.

While working on my Luxembourg families I noticed that a new collection was recently added or updated. Church Records from Luxembourg for the years 1601-1948.


I’m quite sure that this is a NEW database that was added yesterday!

I checked a few of the towns and villages I’ll be working with in the next few weeks and found that so far they have records for mid- to late 1700s and very early 1800s. This is a nice era to begin with church records as it is a time period where the civil records are a bit lacking. I’ll have to keep an eye on this and make a list of direct ancestors who may be found in these records.

I couldn’t resist checking to see what the records look like and how easy or hard they may be to search.

recordsMarriages are indexed! Information from the marriage record has been extracted to an index card and filed alphabetically by groom AND by bride. I found this index card for my husband’s 4th great-grandparents in the Tables des mariages 1700-1798 (index by groom):

“Luxembourg, registres paroissiaux, 1601-1948,” images, FamilySearch (,1501181502 : accessed 10 January 2015), Diekirch > Tables des mariages 1700-1798 (index organisée par l’époux) > image 263 of 1195; paroisses, Luxembourg [parishes, Luxembourg].
Then I browsed the Marriages 1743-1794 and found:

“Luxembourg, registres paroissiaux, 1601-1948,” images, FamilySearch (,1500891002 : accessed 10 January 2015), Diekirch > Mariages 1743-1794 > image 31 of 122; paroisses, Luxembourg [parishes, Luxembourg].
I had the date of marriage in my database but I did not have an image of the marriage record.

I am going to have to make a resolution:

  • Keep focused on the planned families for the 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks challenge and check this database only for the those families.

When I’m not doing genealogy and blogging, I spend time riding my racing bike with my husband through the wonderful Luxembourg countryside.
