I understand Cajun is asking for the Ste Croix his/her ancestors came from...
And many of these immigrants settled in ... Holy Cross/Wi
So, take a map (a real one... 1:25.000 are the best!)
and look at the Province of Luxembourg (not the Grand-Duchy!)
Find Arlon, draw a line from that City due south in the direction Messancy
Five Km from Arlon, you have Wolkrange.
Ste Croix is a hamlet of Wolkrange!
they have a very active genealogy club!
write to: Jean Marie Zimmerman, rue des Calvaires, 28, B-6780 Messancy, in
Belgium, off course!
I think Rd DUCAT wrote a history of the emigration...
