Parish Register, Christening, 1892 - Present: Church records
Although the earliest church record in Denmark dates back to 1572, most churches began keeping records of christenings in the late 1600s. The chirstening record will be the most important source of birth information in Denmark. After 1814 this information was recorded on standard forms, and duplicate books were made of all church records.
