Danish Genealogy & Family History Research

I offer a variety of package deals for the most popular genealogical research projects to make it easy for you to get started. If the packages do not match your needs, we can plan a customized research project.

A lot of Danish genealogical records are available online, so it is still possible to research Danish records, although Danish archives are temporarily closed due to COVID-19 restrictions. Within a few days after each planning call, I will assess the availability of the records needed to start the project. Before you decide on placing an order, you will therefore know whether I can start your research now, or we have to wait until the archives reopen.
