Denmark Gotoarrow.pngMilitary Levying RollsGotoarrow.pngLetters Assigned to Years

The lægdsrullerene used letters instead of the year. When you need lægdsruller, you need to know the letter that stands for the lægdsrulle year that you are interested in. The letters were reused. For example, the letter Q stands for the years 1841, 1866, 1892, 1918 and the 1944. The overview shows the literation.

Lægdsrulle Year - Not Calendar Year

Attention: Until 1843 (letter T) the Lægdsrulle Year was not the same as the Gregorian Calendar Year.


For the Years The Lægdsrulle Year Began and Ended Applies to…
1793 - 1802

November - October

Applies to all rolls

1803 - 1806

November - October

Applies to coming and going rolls

1803 - 1806

May – April

Applies to main rolls

1808 – 1842

May - April

Applies to all rolls

1843 -

January - December

Applies to all rolls


Example: Lægdsrulle J: 1812 = May 1811 - April 1812


This means, the main part of the lægdsrulle with the literation J = the year 1812, also includes nine months of 1811!


Lægdsrulle year R: 1842 = May 1841 - April 1842.


Lægdsrulle year S: 1842 = May 1842 - December 1842.


Note: The year 1952 has both letters Z and Æ.


Two years shown after 1871

After 1871 on the spine of the lægdsrulle books you will find two years shown, such as 1872 and 1890. The first year (1872) indicate the birth year for those who had been entered in the roll, because they have reached the required age for registration. The second (1890) tells which year the roll is reporting. The last year has meaning when you have to follow the movements, since this is the year that the letter designates the year being cross-referenced.
