Family and Genealogy: Luxembourg

New Trier is one of the oldest towns in Minnesota and is named after the city located along the Mosel River on the border with Luxembourg. See more on New Trier and Landsberger family

The New Trier area was settled beginning in the mid 1800s by European immigrants, predominantly from German and Luxembourg. Reasons cited by the new settlers for coming to the heartland of America included the following: 1) The promise of free homesteads or cheap fertile, farmland in order to provide better living conditions for their families, 2) To seek a more favorable form of democratic government, and 3) As a way for young men to evade compulsory military service.
