Luxembourg

Farmer-
Have you ever been to Luxembourg? My family immigrated from there in the early 1900's. I know this isn't exactly prophecy related, but I was just wondering what Luxembourg was like, and if you know of any way to look up ancestors in that country. Take care.

Hey Aaron,
thanks for your patience, - I liked your question a lot.
Yes, I have been to Luxemburg, but just once and it was at night, as I drove through on a trip to Paris,
it is a very small place, almost just forest and then this beautiful city on the hill, with the BCEE bank and the castle of Luxemburg, a lot of tiny bridges, the steets small and enlightened by the typical yellow light, very beautiful and a touch of noblesse and secrecy, maybe beause it was 3 at night, very quiet and raining......
concerning ancestry I just found these two pages, maybe it helps...

http://www.luxembourg.co.uk/genealog.html
maybe it helps to speak French, for other pages?

thanks!

Thanks farmer!

My ancestors came from there, it would be fun to track them down if any are still there.
And you describe it just as I imagine it. :grin:

Haven't spoken French since 7th grade. That was '87.

Let's see ...
