Re: Arend family - Belgium, Luxembourg

In the past Luxemburg has been a part of Belgium and then went on its own. The Dutch made claims on this part of the country along with the Belgian teritory after Napoleon loosing the batle at Waterloo. So it was granted to Netherlands on 1815. But they put high taxes on the Belgians because they wanted to fill the (Dutch)gouvernement boxes. Then there came an uprising and the Belgians went independ.

So you might find your Arend in either Belgian (french speaking regian), or Luxenburg or even Germany on its border with Belgium. Give me name and christian names and dates and whatever you have and I'll try and work my magic.

Victor
