Luxembourg History and Culture Week: Luxembourg.lu
If you're like me, tracing who had control of Luxembourg - which has an impact on records structure and language - quickly gets confusing. Turns out Luxembourg's government has tried to make this easier! On the website Luxembourg.lu, they've posted a timeline of major events in Luxembourg's history. While most Luxembourg-American families won't attach much importance to the date of the introduction of the Euro, you may be interested in the date of Luxembourg's independence (1815). The "Historical Abstract" is a definitely a nice cheat sheet.
