Scandinavia SIG #Scandinavia Where are Danish Altona Records to be found? #scandinavia


Alan Ehrlich
 

My great great grandparents (Moses Josua and Betty Hertz) got married about
1800 in Altona, which is also where all their children were born (all births
were pre-1820).

Searching in the Hamburg archive/Talmud Thora proved fruitless because - as
they explained to me - during that time period, Altona was part of
Denmark... and the corresponding records are not in Germany (Hamburg).

I would be very grateful if some of you, experienced with family research in
Denmark, could suggest where I might look to find Altona Jewish records from
ca 1720-1820.

Thank you.

Friendly regards,
