How would you suggest I learn enough Danish to do Danish genealogy?
@BeltranDebraLarsen1 Hi and thank you for reaching out to FamilySearch. We're not really allowed to give you advice on commercial issues but I can tell you what I did in a similar language, I have used an app called "Duolingo" to study Norwegian and it has helped me to improve my understanding and speaking of the language. It isn't structured to assist with genealogy however so you might need to investigate through "Google" for something more geared towards Family History. There are some specialist groups within FamilySearch which may help you (one called "FamilySearch:Danmark", and one called "Nordic Countries Genealogy Research", and yet another called "Tempel og Slæghtshistorie - Danmark"). The people who administer these groups I have always found to be very helpful so you could certainly ask questions of them when you get into your research. The Church has, in the past, published guides in the various languages which must be available online now. That would also be worthwhile pursuing. I hope this has been of some help to you but, if you need more help, please get back to us at any time.
John L. Kennedy. Ha det.
Thank you for your suggestions and ideas of some resources. I appreciate it!
Just a suggestion, have your tried the Danish Genealogy on FamilySearch Wiki? Lots of great information
Google Translate also is very helpful. The website has the most features but the mobile app can do camera OCR and translation of printed text.
If you find Google Translate makes translation errors, you can teach it the correct translation. I have done this for some conventional Hungarian phrases on gravestones.
Yes, Google Translate works well. Sometimes it messes up but genealogical purposes, it should work just fine.
The Danish genealogical society can be found at this site, and you can change the language into English: www.slaegt.dk
Lots of tips, tricks and links - use it.
