Records for Tracing Danish Ancestry
Denmark is a country that has excellent records for genealogy research. Danish church records date back to about 1572, and were kept at the parish level. The christening ceremony for babies usually occurred within a short time after the birth, and the associated records usually included vital information such as the birth date, parents’ names, and the family’s place of residence. Danish census records can also be very helpful in identifying additional family members and extending family lines. Additionally, wills and probate files are useful in identifying things like the name of the decedent, the place of residence at the time of death, an enumeration of legal heirs, the age and spouses of the heirs, and an inventory of the estate
