Tables Decennales, 1853-1863
"The Tables Decennales" have been published periodically since 1807, when they were instituted during the French occupation of the Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg. In the nineteenth century, they consisted of ten-year compilations of birth, marriage, and death records from village/commune civil registrations, organized alphabetically by surname. As such they constitute an excellent source for family historians interested in linking a Luxembourg surname with a particular locality. Social historians also have found these compilations useful for the study of Luxembourg demographics.
