Taking On New Responsibility at Luxracines

You may have noticed it’s been a bit quiet here the past few weeks. May is always a busy month with holidays (1st of May, Assumption Day, Pentecost) and birthdays but events in April are another reason I’ve had to slow down a bit.

logo_klengLuxracines, my genealogy association in Luxembourg, held its General Assembly on 14 April 2016 at the Centre Becheler in Walferdange. President Rob DELTGEN welcomed Madame Eliane IRTHUM, a communal representative for Walferdange, the Luxracines members and Jean-Marie NEIERS, who represented the Cercle Généalogique de Yutz 3 Frontières, a French genealogy association.

The announcement that the commune of Walferdange will provide the association with a location to house the recently acquired Daus library with its almost 1300 family books from the border region was received with applause.

The president also announced the planned publication of the family book of Echternach for the years 1797-1923 compiled by Thomas WEAVER, a member of the association.

Jean-Pierre WEIDERT who manages the homepage of the association presented Luxracines‘ new GEDCOM project which is online and available to members.

Secretary Christiane OTH-DIEDERICH gave a review of the activities in 2015. These included several which I blogged about:

Following the financial report by the treasurer Tun JACOBY and the report of the auditors, the treasurer was granted discharge by applause.

My candidature for the executive committee was accepted and I was elected. Per the statutes the positions in the committee were distributed at the first meeting of the committee on 28 April 2016:

President: Rob DELTGEN
Vice-President: Claude BETTENDROFFER
Secretary: Christiane OTH-DIEDERICH
Treasurer: Cathy MEDER-DEMPSEY
Webmaster: Jemp WEIDERT

I’m looking forward to the new responsibilities and the upcoming activities. The agenda for 2016 may be viewed here.

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