I am preparing a book of copies of the actualarchived documents toprovide most birth, marriage and some death dates for our ancestors dating from my great great grandparents who lived at Bourghoff Castle, Canton of Mersch, in the village of Beisten, the parish of Cruchten in Nommern, Luxembourg andprobably all if not most ofall seven generationspreceding them and their children. Theyhave to have had many descendents! The pedigree I have amassed goes back to 1688 with those seven generations of our ancestors. If youhave descended from my great, great grandparents:Servais born 18 May 1828,Beisten, Bofferdange,Mersch, Nommern, Luxembourg and Elizabeth, born 1 Jan 1833, Buffordinger(France or Luxembourg), I am preparing abook ofall that I have gathered.Some seven generations lived at Bourghoff Castle, ending with Maria Florentine or Mary Florentia, born 7 Apr 1873,a sister to my ancestor,Gustave, who were two ofthe four children who came to America with Elizabeth after Servais was shot by Napoleon's army.
Tell me if youare also their descendant and havepictures, documents, and other information to share. I would be delighted to learn more.
Years ago, my mother gave me pictures of the castle at Bourghoff that she was given( I wasn't told who took them), and I have enlarged them to be included in the book. I have one letter great grandpa Gustave wrote, naming a few family names. Gretchen, Hanna and Ignatius's names have not yet been proven with documentation. They may have been nicknames? And I have a photo of a painting of Servais and Elibabeth which is hanging on the wall at the castle.
Let me know if youjust want a copy of the book. Sincerely, Carol
