Follow Friday: Useful websites for Luxembourg - American Research

   I'm stepping away from my typical "Follow Friday" format today. I've spent the last few days looking for new ways to learn about Luxembourger culture and thought you might like to see some of the websites I've turned up:
  1. http://www.everyculture.com/multi/Le-Pa/Luxembourger-Americans.html: A page on a site dedicated to America's many cultures, this article provides a good overview of Luxembourg-American culture. I just wish it were cited!

 2. http://www.stearns-museum.org/pages/Resources/: The Stearns County Historical Society gives you a new option for ordering from the Luxemburg Gazette. Even better, they have an index. They also have an index to immigrants to Stearns County.

3. http://www.eluxemburgensia.lu/R/RN=703943487&local_base=SERIALS: The National Library of Luxembourg has an option for searching its newspapers online. I only found one mention of my family - but it was my ancestor's uncle announcing a plan to immigrate. Cool, right?

Hope they're useful!
