Those Places Thursday: Where is my ancestor’s hometown?

So you know where your ancestor was married, but there’s no birth record in that town?

What do you do next?

It’s time to check surrounding towns, which requires a map. Finding a Luxembourg map can be challenging, but you may be in luck if your ancestors lived on the German border. Atlas des Deutschen Reichs is online, searchable and contains part of the Luxembourg territory. Happy hunting!
