Language : Some of the websites have English versions, look for a British flag. Even then, all of the pages are not translated and the images of any records or newspapers will be in the native language. As the boundaries changed the language of the official records may also have changed.
These translations will not be perfect but they can give you an idea of the content. If you are trying to communicate with someone using machine translated text I strongly recommend that you copy the suggested translated version and then translate it back to the original language to see if the meaning is anything close to the original.
Out of necessity, and for a little humor, I have included a few examples of machine language translation later in this article. You may want to consider having two browser panels running at the same time, one with the actual website and one with the translator. Text can be cut and pasted or images transcribed into the translate window. In the following examples the father is Hans and his children are Anders and Anna.
Boundaries : Historical maps are helpful to determine the geo-political boundaries at a particular point in time. Regional maps are good because they show the position of a country or an territory in relationship to the surrounding areas. David Rumsey Historical Map Collection www. The collection focuses on rare 18th and 19th century North American and South American maps and other cartographic materials. Historic maps of the World, Europe, Asia, and Africa are also represented.

There is no fixed timetable for the launch of each parish register and population census on the Internet, as this is a continuous process. The parish registers and population censuses will be displayed as pictures of the original records. The pictures show that many records are marked by poor storage conditions, poor ink quality and general wear and tear - a state of affairs that is irremediable. No registers have been compiled in which to search for personal names, occupations, addresses etc. The end year may, however, differ for South Jutland North Schleswig because the local parish registers were kept according to different rules in the period , when South Jutland was under German administration.
The following population censuses are accessible via the Internet: , , , , , , and The following population censuses will become accessible in the future: , , , and Any other population censuses are not included in this project. It should be noted that only population censuses taken within the Kingdom of Denmark will be made available at this site.

Finding the Parish The good news is that all of the older parish records are available online for free; however you do need to know the parish in order to find the desired records.
It also helps to know the exact date of an event. Review U. I have been able to locate the images of several records after finding the dates and places from IGI entries at FamilySearch. The Danish Demographic Database, listed next, can possibly locate individuals in census records that often provide the birth parish and timeframe as well as the necessary details to narrow down the search for a census record image. One record can often provide the necessary information such as birthplace, age, or home to help locate other records.
A list of the available records will then appear. After selecting the desired book it is a bit of trial and error to locate the correct record type and date. There is a color code next to the Opslag poster number to show which pages have been viewed. The Patronymic naming system was in use until There was a transition period as people began to use family surnames. The last entry is if the marriage was performed in the church or at home, and if it was done at home, the date that permission was given.
Browsing the census records is actually a more accurate description. The viewer window will open with a list of pages.
It becomes a bit of trial and error at this point to find the desired page. In the Census there are three pages for each place. Use the summary card to see different information about the ancestor. This is especially handy when you want to move from seeing generations to seeing information about a specific person.
The Details page shows information about a specific person. If you click Memories near the top of the screen, you will see the Memories page with all the photos, stories, and documents that users have added for the person. Any user can add or edit information. Where possible, attach sources to verify the information.
When you add or edit information, you can explain why it is correct in a note. In Family Tree, sometimes a person has more than one record. These are called possible duplicates. You can merge the records into one record and keep the best information. Verbal approval is acceptable. Family members should work together to determine when the ordinances will be done and who will do them. A symbol may also cause Needs More Information error. You can print Family Ordinance Cards from your home printer and take them to the temple to complete the ordinance.
Home ChurchofJesusChrist. What Is Family Tree? Back to top What Is Family Tree? This view is good for adding new people to Family Tree. This view makes it easy to see where you could add more generations to a family tree. This view helps you connect to your ancestors and makes them real. Have fun.
Before I explain about the IGI please be aware that most of the data held by the LDS comes in the form of microfilm and microfiche copies of original parish registers, books etc. These are of course highly accurate as they are simply a filmed copy of the records themselves and as such error free. The IGI or Computer File Index to give it its name before about This is a database made up from mainly two sources patron submissions and "controlled extractions".
Be aware the IGI is not and has never been intended to be an index of parish records it is an index of church ordinances.
It first appeared here on microfiche as the Computer file Index in Much of the IGI is made up from patron submissions these are submissions made by member and non-members of the LDS and through its extraction program. This is where the names of deceased people are taken out of historical records such as church, census, probate, etc. They are then submitted, temple work completed and indexed on the IGI. Remember extracted material is not always more accurate than submitted material.
Latter Day Church web site: lds.org.http://www.familysearch.org/Eng/Search/frameset_search.asp
The submitted material might be from a birth or marriage certificate, while extracted material might be taken from a compiled historical record or transcript. Submitted material sometimes contains more information than extracted records. Temple ordinances : Baptism; A deceased person is offered the chance of being baptised into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints A living person is baptised in proxy on behalf of the deceased.
