===3. Requesting Records From the National Archives===
Archives of Luxembourg (Archives de Nationales Luxembourg) has collections of parish registers and can advise you on records that are still retained by the local parish. This is where you will write for more recent records--those for events since the end of the digitized records coverage (about 1923) up to the present day.
Their [http://www.anlux.lu/multi/fr/recherche-genealogique '''Genealogical Research FAQ'''] explains in detail how to request and pay for searches and copies of records.
==Census Records (''Recensements'') ==
Census records list the names of each member of a family and show ages and other valuable information for linking families. Earlier censuses give names of heads of families and their children. Later censuses give ages or birth dates, places of residence, civil status, occupation, etc. The are especially useful for sorting children unto families, when a village has several families with the same father's name.

*Search for the relative or ancestor you selected. When you find his birth record, search for the births of his '''brothers and sisters'''.
*Next, search for the '''marriage of his parents.''' The marriage record will have information that will often help you find the birth records of the parents.
