    - Denmark Church Records, 1813-1919 - MyHeritage
    The Lutheran Church in Denmark began keeping vital records in 1645 after the king issued a royal decree requiring the clergy on the island of Sjælland to record baptisms, marriages, and burials. The same decree was issued the following year (1646) to the rest of the kingdom. Some ministers had been keeping vital records much earlier with the earliest parish records starting in 1572 in the city of Nakskov.After the events of the Reformation the Danish Crown recognized only the Evangelical Lutheran Church, with a few exceptions. The Reformed Church was recognized in 1747 and established Jewish congregations were recognized in 1814. In 1849 the Danish constitution recognized additional Christian dissenter churches, but it required that all denominations notify the minister of their local Lutheran parish of all births and deaths occurring in their congregations.In 1814 standardized and form-based registers were produced and issued to the Lutheran clergy to aid in the collection of these records. This collection contains the records of these standardized records from 1814 to 1920. A subsequent addition to this collection is in preparation which will add the earlier and non-standardized records from the earliest available parish registers to the end of 1813.In the beginning of the vital record keeping practices in Denmark the requirement was limited to baptisms, marriages, and burials. Confirmations started to be recorded in 1736. In the early 1800s Denmark suffered a severe smallpox epidemic, which resulted in a vaccination law that went into effect on March 4, 1810. Priests were often trained to administer vaccinations and recorded these events in their parish registers. Around 1812 some parishes also began keeping track of individuals moving in and out of their parish.Other types of church records include introductions, absolutions, and communions. These records were generally not kept after the standardization of form-based registers, so these are not included in this collection at this time.A brief explanation of each record type is given below:Birth (Fødte) or Baptisms (Døbte) – Children were normally baptized (or "christened”) within a few days of birth. Birth or baptismal registers usually contain the infant’s and parent’s names, legitimacy, date, and names of witnesses and godparents. Sometimes the child’s birth date, the father’s occupation, and the family’s exact place of residence is listed. In the pre-printed registers, male and female births were usually recorded separately.Marriages (Copulerde or Viede) – Marriage records contain the marriage date along with the names of the bride and groom and their residences. After 1814 it is common for these records to include additional information about the bride and groom such as their ages, occupations, names of their fathers, and sometimes birthplaces. Finally, these records may indicate whether they were single or widowed and gives names of witnesses who were often (but not always) other family members. Death (Døde) or Burials (Begravede) – Burials usually took place with a few days of death. Burials in Denmark were recorded in the records of the parish where the burial occurred. Burial registers provide the deceased's name, death or burial date, place of burial, and age at death. After 1814 the records may include the deceased’s place of residence, cause of death, and names of survivors or next-of-kin. Sometimes the deceased’s birth date, birth place, and parents’ names are given. Post-1814 records were kept in separate lists for males and females.Confirmations (Konfirmerede or Confirmerede) – In 1736 the Church required that young people be instructed in the Lutheran catechism and pass a simple examination by the minister before taking their first communion—normally at about the age of 14. Confirmation records contain the person’s name, residence, and sometimes age. After 1814 the records are separated into lists for males and females, and include the parents’ names and sometimes the date and place of the person’s birth or christening.Vaccinations (Vaccinerede) – The vaccination mandate began in 1810 required everyone to receive the smallpox vaccine, unless the person at already had the pox. Vaccinations typically occurred when children were quite young. These records usually list the name of the person receiving the vaccine, date of vaccination, their father’s name, and their age or birth date. A person’s vaccination date could also be recorded in their confirmation record, and if they ever moved, could be noted in their moving in or moving out record.Moving In (Tilgangsliste) and Moving Out (Afgangsliste) Records – Began in 1812 and list individuals moving in or moving out of a parish. These records may contain name, age or birth date, occupation, residence, vaccination date, moving date, and where moving to/from.Surnames and Searching:Surnames in Danish genealogy can be quite confusing. Patronymic surnames—surnames constructed using the given name of the person’s father appended with either “-sen” (son) or “-datter” (daughter)—were legally abolished in 1826, at which time the government wanted people to adopt family surnames instead. However, it took several decades before patronymic surnames stopped being used completely; in fact, most ordinary people used patronymics through the mid-19th century. For this reason, it is impossible for a researcher to know which surname an individual might be recorded under in records dating from 1826 up to about 1870. Because of this, MyHeritage has augmented records behind-the-scenes, for records dating from 1826 to 1870, with both surnames. Regardless of which surname you search for your ancestor under, this behind-the-scenes work will help surface the best matches for your search, but may show search results that initially look incorrect. - Collection - 10455 - https://www.myheritage.com/research/record-10455-608920/kirstine-marie-jorgensdatter-in-denmark-church-records -
