Thrifty Thursday: Institut grand-ducal's "The Pilgrim's Progress"
One of the best resources on Luxembourg immigration to the United States is actually available for free. Called "The Pilgrim's Progress," the section of the Institut grand-ducal's website traces emmigration from the Moselle River Valley to the United States, beginning in 1846. It offers an overview of each step of the process, from preparing to leave through to settlement in the United States. If you're curious about your ancestor's journey, this is the place to start reading.
