Military Monday: Luxembourg Canadian Soldiers

Most North American research focuses on Luxembourgers in the United States – but we often forget that Luxembourgers settled on both sides of the Canadian-American border

Did you know there were Luxembourgers in the Canadian Expeditionary Force? Although the subject is little studied, I found an interesting post dating from 2012 listing Luxembourgers. The author actually missed second or third generation Luxembourgers, born in the US or Canada to American or Canadian parents. I found a distant cousin among the ranks of the CEF.

Looking to find out more about your Luxembourgers who served in the CEF? You can search some of their files on  the website of the Library and Archives of Canada.
