Denmark Social Life and Customs
Effective family research requires some understanding of the society in which your ancestor lived. Your research steps, and the records you search, are going to vary according to the time and place your ancestor lived. Learning about your ancestor’s everyday life, social structure, religious practices, customs, and traditions will enhance your research abilities. This information is especially helpful if you choose to write your family's history. Here are some good topics to consider:
- Naming Customs
- Infant Mortality
- Work in Rural Denmark
- Work in the Cities of Denmark
The following is a good book describing Danish social life and customs:
- MacHaffie, Ingeborg S., and Margaret A. Nielsen. Of Danish Ways. Minneapolis: Dillion Press, 1976. (FHL 948.9 E6m.)
