FamilySearch – First Batch of Luxembourg Civil Registration Records Now Searchable

Luxflag25pcWhat’s new on FamilySearch for Luxembourg? On Tuesday, 16 August 2016, records became searchable in the Luxembourg Civil Registration, 1662-1941 collection – 32,614.

FSLuxNewFrom time to time I do indexing for FamilySearch and found only one batch of Luxembourg records in the cue of current projects: Luxemburg, Esch Civil Registration, 1796–1923. “This project is a collection of birth, marriage, and death records from the city of Esch-sur-Alzette in south-western Luxembourg between 1796 and 1923.” Currently, 79% have been indexed and 71% arbitrated.

indexingIt looks like they are beginning to release the records which have been completed. If you have ancestors who were born, married or died in Esch-sur-Alzette you can now search by name instead of browsing the records.

Interested in doing indexing? Go to Find an Indexing Project. I’d love to see the Luxembourg records being done sooner than 2020!

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

  1. This is exciting news for people researching in Luxembourg. I just wish FamilySearch had an easier way to correct errors as there are plenty of them in the already transcribed records. What is the photograph at the top? A piece of art? Luxembourg’s idea of graffiti?

    1. It’s a tourist information office on the Luxembourg-Germany border. I wanted a Luxbg flag as a stock photo.
      The errors is one of the reasons I think genealogists in Luxembourg or those who work with the records should be helping with indexing. It won’t get the old ones corrected though. Thanks Janice.
