Luxembourg Parish Record (Nemmers)

Updated 16 March 2001

The following is taken from an email (11 March 2001) from Suzanne Bunkers.

"I have typed below the transcript of the information from Luxembourg parish records, sent to me by Jean-Claude Muller of Redange, Luxembourg. Note that in Luxembourg, some records were kept in Latin, some in French, some in German. Most towns have two names: French (Dondelange) and German (Dondelingen). See how this information links to what you already know about the NEMMERS ancestral lines. --Cousin Suzanne Bunkers

On February 4, 1782, Petrus (Peter) Nemmers, widower from Tuntingen (Tuntange) married Anna-Maria Nesen, legitimate daughter of Nicholaus Noesen and Margaritha Mullhentgten from Bruch.
