Tuesday's Tip: German Language Hints
While I'm most comfortable researching Luxembourg-American records, I finally decided it was time to take a leap into the Luxembourger records. Of course, I can't read German (and I'm not in a lucky village where the records were in French and Latin), so easier said than done - until I remembered something. FamilySearch.org offers word lists in various foreign languages. The German list provides what you'll need to translate the basics from vital records. Hopefully this will help you make the jump from Luxembourg-American to Luxembourg records. I'll let you know when I find something!
