Record Description[edit | edit source]

This collection contains deeds and mortgages for the years 1572 to 1928, for South Jutland, Denmark.

Deeds and mortgages are binding contracts (fæstebrev). These records along with some land books (jordebøger) are usually kept by the estate owner. See the following articles for additional information which may be helpful to you.

You will be able to browse through images in this collection when it is published.

Record Content[edit | edit source]

Records usually contain the following information:

  • Name of the property or estate owner
  • Date of land transfer
  • Name of person living on the estate
  • Details of the transaction such as monies exchanged

How to Use the Record[edit | edit source]

To begin your search it is helpful to know the following:

  • The name of the estate owner or occupant
  • Approximate date of the mortgage or deed

Search the Collection[edit | edit source]

To search the collection:
⇒Select the "Browse" link in the initial search page
⇒Select the "Archive"
⇒Select the "Series and title"
⇒Select the "Volume and year" which takes you to the images

Indexes are available on some of these groups of images. If indexes are available, check these for the name first. Indexes are usually located at the beginning of a group of images or at the end. They maybe alphabetized by the first name or the last name. Find your ancestor’s name and look for the locator information next to the name (such as volume and year). This will help you find the record you are looking for in the collection.

Look at each image comparing the information with what you already know about your ancestors to determine if the image relates to them. You may need to look at several images and compare the information about the individuals listed in those images to your ancestors to make this determination. Keep in mind:

  • There may be more than one person in the records with the same name.
  • You may not be sure of your own ancestor’s name.
  • Your ancestor may have used different names or variations of their name throughout their life.

Using the Information[edit | edit source]

When you have located your ancestor’s record, carefully evaluate each piece of information given. Save a copy of the image or transcribe the information. These pieces of information may give you new biographical details such as a title, an occupation, or land ownership. Add this new information to your records of each family. You should also look for leads to other records about your ancestors.

For Help Reading These Records[edit | edit source]

These records are in Danish. For help with reading the records see the following wiki articles:
