Luxembourg Parish/Civil Records, 1600-1890
The vital records of Luxembourg, 1600-1890, were created and maintained by village and district Catholic parishes and by civil authorities. These records include baptisms, births, burials, confirmations, conversions, deaths, and marriages, for example. During the Napoleonic era, an alternate calendar and system of records description were used.
These records, with partial or periodic indices, exist on microfilm and are available to researchers at all Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints ("Mormon") Family History Centers, at the Department of Special Collections of the O'Shaughnessy-Frey Library, St. Paul, Minnesota, as well as at the Archives Nationales de Luxembourg and the Erzbischoflisches Ordinariat Luxemburg.
The University of St. Thomas has created two searchable databases, Luxembourg Parish/Civil Records, 1600-1890 and Tables Decennales, 1853-1863 to make these records accessible to the research community. Online searches cannot retrieve original documents; they will, however, indicate the pertinent roll(s) of LDS microfilm on which records can be found.
These databases initially were developed using the May 1994 "Locality Catalog" for Luxembourg records published by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Microfilm roll numbers for certain localities have changed in the meantime. Please consult your LDS Family History Library for a comparative list of old and new microfilm numbers.
