Jurisdictions

In 1793 the Counties were reorganized into 24 Counties. However, Roskilde is filed under København so we only list 23 counties below. The churches in Copenhagen City are listed under the city rather than the county.

The Danish name for county is Amt. The organization of Danish records in the Family History Library Catalog is based upon this time period.
