Title in the Languages of the Record


  • Luxembourg registre d'état civil
  • Luxemburg Civil Registration

Record Description

This Collection will include records from 1793 to 1923.

The events are recorded either in French or German totally by hand or in partially pre-printed books where the information is then entered by hand. The name of a child not registered when born will not be given in the death record, but the gender of that child will be. If the child was stillborn it will state that, although sometimes this term was applied to children who died shortly after birth.

For a list of records by localities and dates currently published in this collection, select the Browse.

Civil birth, marriage, and death records have been kept from 1796 to the present, although this collection only has records until 1924. This collection does have some parish records that date back to 1793. Some of the earlier records (until 1805) follow the French Republican Calendar
