Re: Father of Mathias Lux (not Lowell's

In Reply to: Father of Mathias Lux (not Lowell's Lux) by Christina Vander Vorst of 371

Here is the letter my source sent me. It includes information that might help you in your research:

Dear Christina,

Im happy to hear from you.

Sorry, I have more informations about the Kemling family than the Lux family. The Lux family is originated more than 300 Kilometers far away from the Eichsfeld area, my special research area. I had to use an atlas to find out where Kelberg is. Because of genealogical books I found out that there exists a book about every family living in this area between 1654 and 1801. I phoned the bookwriter and reached his wife. She told me that he will phone back the weekend. We will see.
I will try to get the book.

The churchbooks of Kelberg and sourrounding area are in the churchbook archive of Trier (old german town). But there are a lot of microfiches in different genealogical institutions.

The teacher (I told you), sent me the following informations:
