Have you reached a “brick wall” in your genealogy research? Onsite genealogy research in Denmark may just be the key to extending your Danish ancestry. We have genealogists in Denmark who can help!
Challenges in Danish Genealogy Research
Danish records are organized on the local level, so identifying the town of origin is essential, before conducting any research in Denmark. This is especially true due to the use of patronymics, meaning there were many people with the same names. While the Danish archives have digitized many records, including church records, censuses, and military records, more specialized records are held in the provincial or national archives. These include court, land, nobility, and other local specialized records that must be accessed onsite.
Our Team of Professional Genealogists Can Help
If you have Danish ancestry, our professionals can track down the city/town of origin of your ancestors and identify where the records for that place are currently kept. Our onsite agents can then visit that location to obtain any documents that are needed.
