Here is everything I need to send to the Ministry of Justice.
Having finished the document hunt, I have started compiling the vital records for myself all the way back to my great-great-great grandparents into an organized binder. I am giving each document its own sleeve. On one side of the sleeve, I will slide in the document. On the reverse side, I will type and print explanations of each document. To ensure an expeditious application process, and because I’m anal-retentive and want this all to go well, I’m writing these description pages in English, French and German. Thankfully I still remember how to say simple words such as “birthday” and “great-grandmother” auf Deutsch, and Sarah has written the French part.
In addition to the documents, I’m writing a letter requesting a CERTIFICAT RELATIF A L’AIEUL LUXEMBOURGEOIS. Using InDesign, I’m designing a family tree to chart my relation to my Luxembourg ancestors. I will insert this after the letter requesting citizenship and before the documents.
I will then send the application binder to the following address TOMORROW.
Ministère de la Justice
Service de l’Indigénat
Centre Administratif Pierre Werner
I HAVE A PANIC ATTACK EVERY DAY UNTIL I RECEIVE SOMETHING IN THE MAIL FROM LUXEMBOURG.
