Denmark recently changed the way it assigns territory to a governing body. I will strive to document the older counties as they were for a fair amount of history. I think this will enable you to more quickly find the right records and church information. This is a good starting place when preparing for research about ancestors. Though maps change over time and rulers as well, records of specific localities may still be found in the current State archives. Sometimes there are even challenges finding the right alignment of a record to the archive based upon the date the historical record was created. If the States are highlighted, they contain a link to subsequent focused information. If they are not highlighted, information has not been developed for that State. Please refer to the sitewide collaboration forum link above to share information or ask questions.
