Birth and Baptism records
« Dato: 29 Okt 2012 - 05:24 »
Will some please translate the following two birth/baptism records for me.

1841-1858 Hjørring/Vennebjerg/Harridslev sogn opslag 25 #1
1841-1862 Hjørring/Vennebjerg/Vennebjerg sogn opslag 35 #18

While I would like to know what the entire entry says, I at least hope to learn more about the parents and who was at the baptism.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Thank you Helmer.

Can you answer a question, why would the priest of Tårs be informed of the child's birth and baptism? The concept of churchbook records of all births is foreign to us in the US, where the govenment records births, marriages and deaths. Only baptisms, confirmations and marriages in the church are church records here.

Again thank you. This created a few new questions about Jens Peter's parents for me to think about. Will definitely make it harder to locate more about them. Hopefully, I can learn more about them and Ane Marie's parents as well. I know very little about this side of my family.

As each parish had to provide for its own poor, it was important to determine to which parish a pauper belonged.

In regard to illegitimate children the place where the mother resided or were in service ten months before birth was to be considered as the child's birth home.

When in accordance with this rules a child must be considered to have its birth home in a different place than where it really is born, the priest at the latter place must immediately make notification to the priest in the first place, and the adequate record of the child's birth and home made ​​in both church books. (Section 5 of the Regulation of 24 January 1844, containing details of the rules governing the acquisition of the right to poor relief in a municipality.)

On 17 May 1646 was issued a royal letter from king Christian IV to the country's bishops in which priests were required to register all births, marriages and deaths and other religious ceremonies in their parish in a church book. These provisions were repeated in the Danish Law of 1683 and in principle still applies. So priests in the Danish Evangelical Lutheran church also serve as government officials with regard to the registration of births, marriages and deaths.

Section 4 in The Danish Constitution establishes that the Evangelical Lutheran Church is "the people's church" (folkekirken), and as such is supported by the state. (Freedom of religion is granted in section 67, and official discrimination based on faith is forbidden in section 70.)

80% of the population in Denmark are members of the Danish National Church and pays on average 0.89% of their income in tax to the local parish.

Thank you for the explanation, Helmer. It explains the place of residence 10 months before delivery. I have seen it for the ancestors of others in this forum and wondered what the importance was. When it pertained to one of my ancestors, I had to ask.

I will save this information in my genealogy file for future reference.

Would I be able to find Jens Peter Andersen in the church book forTårs also? Would it contain the same information as the church book in Vennebjerg or could it contain additional information?

Hi Michelle,

Cannot find an entry for Jens Peter Andersen's birth in Taars, but I found his confirmation in Vennebjerg parish (1862-1891), opslag 11, #5.

It says that his parents are: Farmer and xxx Anders Peter Jensen and Wife Kirsten Marie Jensdatter, Havgaards Mark.

So the parents must have married.

Don't know whether you have them in 1880:
