=== I Can’t Find the Person I’m Looking For, What Now? ===
*Consult the [[Denmark Record Finder]] to find other records
*When looking for a person with a common name, look at all the entries for the name before deciding which individual is correct. Use other information, such as place of birth, age, occupation, or names of parents, to determine which candidate is the correct person. If listed, a personal title may be a clue to property ownership or occupation, either of which might be noted in other records
*Check for variants of given names, surnames, and place names. Transcription errors could occur in any handwritten record; also, it was not uncommon for an individual be listed under a nickname or an abbreviation of their name
*Search the records of nearby parishes. While it was uncommon for an individual in this period to move more than about 20 miles from their place of birth, smaller relocations were not uncommon
*Look at the actual image of the record to verify the information found in the online description, if possible
*Consult the [[Denmark Record Finder]] to find other records
