Wedding Wednesday: my great-great-grandmother's family... and the Luxembourg Civil Registration
It took several hours, but I finally found what I was looking for in the Luxembourg Civil Registrations on FamilySearch.org. My great-great-grandparents married in a village in Luxembourg in June 1823. I made an assumption about location based on where my later relatives were born, including their child. Using her birth date and the age of her father, I made an estimate of the date. I used the age the father turned 21 as a starting point and worked up until the birth of the child I knew about... Turned it up three years early. Now if the record were just in French.
