Parish Register 1572 - 1813, Marriage
Beginning about 1570, churches required their clergy to keep marriage records in Denmark. The marriage record may include the dates of the marriage banns or proclamations. Information found in a marriage record depends on how detailed the minister made his record. Usually it gives the name of the bride and groom and their parents. It may also give their ages or dates of birth.
