  • Census Records

You can browse the census records by parish at the Danish Archives, http://www.sa.dk/ao/.  Folketaelinger is the census records.

  • Church Records

Digital Images available at the Danish Archives, http://www.sa.dk/ao/, beginning in 1813.  Kirkeboeger is the word for Church Book.  Be aware that male and female records are in seperate groups.  Generally male birth/christening records are first then female birth/christening followed by male confirmations and so on.  Even with that clear distinction, don't be surprised if a researcher has given a child the wrong sex.  Be aware that there is an index in most books however if it is alphabetical at all, it will probably be by first name.  Each record has a reference to the index page and the index will have all the pages where the individual is the primary person.  For example only the child is indexed in a birth record, the parents are not.
