Luxembourg Birth Certificate Templates: 1890s

Welcome to the Luxembourg Birth Certificate Template page for the 1890s! I have painstakingly put together templates for transcribing and translating many Luxembourgish civil registrations. I am strictly an amateur, so use at your own discretion! Each line represents a line on the certificate. What I have typed is the printed text, and the blanks are to record the handwritten text. (I always type it in italics to differentiate it from the print.) In each grouping of two lines, the first is the original German or French, and the second is a more or less literal English translation.

Feel free to use any of these in your own research--I would have loved a resource like this when I first began--just copy and paste onto your word processing program. But if you post your results on the internet, please remember to give me credit, and perhaps include a link to my blog. Thanks!

Oh, and speaking of links, heres one back to my main template page.
