== How to Use the Records  ==
 
== How to Use the Records  ==
  
Use civil records, depending on the record, to find the birth, marriage or death date of a person, and also where he was born, his age, name of spouse (if applicable) and name of parents. The records contain even more information than those found in church records. The details presented go far beyond the typical information about the event taking place.

Around 1796, after Luxembourg was annexed by Republican France, it became a requirement for the civil authorities of the communes of Luxemburg to record each birth, marriage, and death that took place in the community. This record was kept regardless of the individuals’ religious affiliation. This record keeping would continue until the present.  
+
Look at the images one by one comparing the information with what you already know about your ancestors to determine which one is your ancestor. You may need to compare the information about more than one person to make this determination.  
  
=== Why&nbsp;the Record Was Created ===
+
== Known Issues with This Collection ==
  
Civil registration was instituted to record births, marriages, deaths; this was done regardless of religious affiliation. This provided for a more complete registration of vital events for the whole population.

+
=== Record Reliability  ===
+
 
+
Civil records are the primary source for research after 1796. They are recorded by either the mayor himself or a government clerk within 3 days of the event. They are generally correct as far as the information goes, as the event was registered by those who were eyewitnesses of the event. Barring spelling errors or faulty memory civil records are as accurate as possible.
