Is it free to use Danish Family Search?
Yes, it is free and will remain so. It is a requirement from the Danish State archive that data is freely available. However, for records after 1908, you must be logged in and have acknowledged that data is only used for private use before you can view the recorded names. A paid Membership is also available at Danish Family Search, and that is for unlimited access to the Family Database or automatic emails when saved searches find new records.
Do you have permission from the Danish State Archive to use the data?
Yes, we have a written permission from the Danish State Archive to use the data.
I have found an error in the transcribed data, what do I do?
We distinguish between interpretation errors and data entry errors. If the churchbooks are transcribed correctly we can make a correction to the search fields. If it's an interpretation error we would like to correct. If the data is transcribed at the Danish State Archive we recommend they are also contacted.
I can't open the original pages?
Click the bottom "open image file" this will force the system to pick up a new version of the image. If that doesn't work please make an error report via the system or send us an email.
