The Luxembourg National Archives play a key role in the conservation and communication of public and private archives as well as in the records management within the Luxembourg state. This work is essential in order to maintain the memory of the country, for a more transparent and more democratic society and for the proper functioning of public organizations. The National Archives enable citizens and researchers to have access to Luxembourg’s collective and individual memory.
During this talk, Nadine Zeien and Sanja Simic will provide you with an overview of the Luxembourg National Archives’ missions and activities, and guide you through the archival material available online for every person interested in genealogical research.
