History[edit | edit source]

Sions parish was created from the northern part of Skt. Jacobs parish on 8 July 1895.

The following is a chronological list of changes to the parish:

  • 19 Sept 1908 - the parish was split into two parishes: Sions nordre parish (later reverted back to Sions parish) and Sions søndre parish (later became Davids parish). Also, a part of the parish went to Aldersro parish.
  • 1928 - part of the parish was given to Kildevælds parish
  • 1930 - again, another portion of the parish was given to Kildevælds parish

Birth, Marriage, and Death Online Records[edit | edit source]

  • Free Online Database:
The vast majority of research you do in Denmark will be in church parish registers, which are held in the Danish State Archives available online at ARKIVALIERONLINE. Select your county and parish from the drop-down lists.
  • Help Reading Danish Records:
Denmark Parish Register Headings provides translated examples of parish headings. You will be able to interpret much of what is in the records using these headings. Danish Genealogical Word List covers typical terms found in the records. Denmark Feast Day Calendars will help you translate dates written in feast day form. Denmark surnames are patronymic and change every generation, so carefully study Denmark Personal Names.
