About genealogy on the internet

Most churchbooks and censuses more than 90 years old are on this website

You need a password to see the pages
You must first choose "amt" and then "sogn". You need not choose "herred"

About censuses
Most censuses from 1787, 1801, 1834, etc. are today at this address

You can look for the name "Andersen" i in Randers amt and you get all the families (households), who had an Andersen in this amt. Try it!!
It will be good when all the censuses from 1901 and 1916 come to this webpage.
