Thankful Thursday: French language records!
Well, I managed to trace the family sideways a little. I found my g-g-grandmother's sister. Good old fashioned hand-searching. The younger sister was born two years later than my g-g-grandmother. And fortunately, for me, it was in period where my family's region in Luxembourg was using French, not German. I am thrilled! I love actually being able to translate my records without a dictionary and lots of help. I didn't get much new information thanks to a quirk in the French language records that give the husband's age and not the wife's. However, it was fun to see a new family name and to learn a little more. Hopefully I'll be able to trace the parents back further shortly.
