Important for genealogists!

Major chapters on familiy names and first names. Many of the books and articles referenced contain lists of family names, explanations of family names, listings of family names combined with house names.
Important for linguists!

As Luxembourg is situated in the French-German language frontier, the book’s interest for both germanistic and romanistic researchers is evident as well as for all linguists interested in language barriers, interference and exchange.
Important for any Researcher on Luxembourg!

Many well-hidden or unknown articles buried in old newspaper articles now identified. They can be made accessible through interlibrary loan of copies from the Luxembourg National Library (books, periodicals) and Luxembourg National Archives (newspapers, microfilms).
The Institute will also be endeavoured to provide logistic help for getting copies of Luxembourg newspaper and periodical articles which are hard to access for foreign researchers.
