Help with Finding Death Information
« Dato: 04 Aug 2022 - 07:18 »
I am trying to find a record of death for Amalie Magdalene Frøbøsse / Terkelsen (b. 26 Feb 1829, Garnisons Parish, Københvn).

The last census I can find her on is 1 February 1860 where she is a patient (I think) at Koppehospitalet (a hospital for people with smallpox)? Does anyone know much about this hospital?

I may have found a record of Amalie's death at Almindeligh Hospital, Københvn, but I am not one hundred percent sure as her surname has been recorded as Thessen:

If this actually is her, do you know of any way to search Western Cemetery for her grave? I have been looking under Vestre Kirkegard (is this correct?) on Find a Grave and also BillionGraves, but haven’t been successful in finding her.

At the time of the 1860 Census, Magdalene Amalie Terkilden was Vadskepige ved Koppehospitalet, i.e. laundry girl.

I think the person who died 2 Dec. 1885 at Almindelig Hospital is Magdalene Amalie Thessen/Thesen:

Whoops ... looks like I got a bit muddled with the details on the 1860 census! ;D So, just to clarify, Magdalene was at a smallpox hospital in Copenhagen, but working as a laundry girl?

Looks like the person whose death information I found is a completely different person. Thanks for finding her details in the 1855 census, Inger. I wonder what happened to Amalie Magdalene / Magdalene Amalie after 1860? Is there anywhere else you can suggest I search for her?

Magdalene Amalie Terkildsen was working as a laundry girl at Koppehospitalet, which was also her place of residence at the time of the 1860 Census.

Her birth record:
https://www.danishfamilysearch.com/churchbook/sogn595/churchlisting141392/opslag15673723 - No 24

I cannot find her after 1860. If she died in Frederiksberg Municipality, you won't find her in the burial protocols of Copenhagen Municipality:

- she's not the person you're loooking for.

Please excuse my ignorance, Inger ... but why would I not be able to find a burial protocol for Magdalene in the Copenhagen Municipality? The Frederiksberg Municipality appears to be surrounded by the Copenhagen Municipality — are they quite separate areas in terms of their records?

Yes, they are.

Frederiksberg has its own archives: https://stadsarkivet.frederiksberg.dk/

Until 1880 there was only one parish in Frederiksberg: Frederiksberg sogn.

Additional parishes:
- 1880: Sankt Matthæus & De Classenske Boligers Menighed, 1897: Sankt Lukas, 1898: Sankt Thomas, 1902: Sankt Markus etc.
