Trevor started the process for citizenship reclamation after winning a Luxembourg Brotherhood of America scholarship at the Schobermesse in 2011. His Great Aunt Mary Lou Eischen, a Chicago native whose grandparents hail from the Grand Duchy, discovered at the event that the Luxembourg government had passed a law in 2008, also known as Article 29, that made the descendants of Luxembourgish ancestors eligible to reclaim their citizenship. Since winning the scholarship, he has worked on the project and shared his experiences on this blog, where he hopes to help the community of people throughout the globe who are trying to become dual-citizens.
Trevor currently lives and works in Washington, D.C., where he lives with his girlfriend and two cats, Mimi and Maytag, who unfortunately do not share the passion of Luxembourg heritage that he expresses on this blog. When not blogging about Luxembourg, he enjoys writing, running, biking, golfing, photography, discussing politics, watching Futurama reruns and listening to classical music.
Trevor visited the capital of Luxembourg in 2014 and cannot wait to explore other parts of the country in the future. Until the day arrives when he’s a millionaire who can afford multiple trips to the Grand Duchy each year — and maybe a summer home somewhere in the Grund — he will enjoy the quaint European nation via its news, cuisine and traditions.
