Finding Danish records in the catalog
I am trying to figure out whether FamilySearch has a particular microfilm of some Danish records. I cannot find it in the catalog, even though I have tried various keywords and browing through categories. They are church account books from Odense District (Herred) 1664-72; listed in the catalog of the Danish National Archives as film numbers S-2912 and S-2913. https://www.sa.dk/daisy/fysiske_enheder_liste?ngid=1058845&ngnid=1058847&heid=180643&henid=180646&epid=12499194
Is there any way to find the digital film by using the Danish microfilm numbers?
Thanks for the correction, @Lene Kottal. It sounds like you have done a pretty complete search in the catalog and not found what you need. Neither have we been successful in finding what you need in the FamilySearch Catalog. It is probably time to see if you can access the information elsewhere. The Research Wiki on FamilySearch is one place to find other online resources. The Denmark Genealogy page is probably a good starting place:
Another option is to sign up for a free virtual consultation with the research experts at the Family History Library. To do that, click the link below and schedule an appointment.1
I am moving your post to the search category for help.0
@Lene Kottal You asked about records for Denmark that might be in the catalog on FamilySearch.org. First of all, no, you are not able to search the FamilySearch catalog using film numbers from the Danish National Archives. If we understand, you are looking for church records for Odense herred, Odense, Denmark for 1664-72.
We searched the catalog using a place search for Denmark, Odense, Odense herred. We do not see any church records in the search results. Broadening the search, we tried Denmark, Odense. No luck finding Church Account books. A search for just Denmark brings up 19 Church Records results, including some church books, but for a later time frame than you mentioned.
If you are looking for a source other than the Danish National Archives, you might see what you can learn from our Research Wiki article on Denmark Church Records. It lists several online resources, some of which require membership fees, but also some that are free. Hopefully it will help you locate what you need:0
Thank you for your response.
I am not looking for church records. I am looking for financial accounts from a church at Funen. They were sent to the Chamber of Finance, so local records from the church are not relevant in this case.
I was hoping to find it online, and I wanted to ensure that I had done what I could to find it in the FamilySearch Catalog.
It would be a nice feature to be able to search for the DK film number. The FamilySearch Catalog and the Danish National Archives Catalog are organized differently, so it can be difficult to find records in the FamilySearch Catalog on the basis of an entry in the Danish National Archives Catalog. I have concluded that the keyword search, searches the notes sections of catalog entries. Is there any chance that DK film numbers could be added to the notes section? I'd be happy to help adding them (after New Year's).
Luckily, I am a Dane in Denmark, so I have the option to go to the archives to see the records.
Thanks for your assistance.
