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,

Dear Alan,

As far as I know, there doesn't exist archives >from Altona other, than our
friends in JGS-Hamburg have access to. With whom have you been in contact?

Dear Alan,
The census of 1803 can be found on the Danish
Demographic Database http://ddd.dda.dk/
Click on "Folketællinger" = Census (marked with red)
Then click on the first link beneath "Søg
personer" = search for persons
Then fill in "Navn" = Name
and then go down to
"Som boede: Amt:"
meaning "who lived: County"
and choose
then go down to
the button below to the right "Søg" = Search
and you get a list of all those with the name
if you find a name you want to look at
click on "Vis husstand" (which will take you to a
list of all those living together with the person
you have chosen.

This way you will find "Bella Hertz" and looking
at the info on those living in the house you get:

Navn: Alder: Civilstand: Stilling i husstanden:
Erhverv: Fødested:
Moses Jesur 37 Verheir. Hausvater Handelt
Bella Hertz 24 Verheir. Dessen Frau
Freinkel Jesur 6 Unverheir. Ihre Tochter
Salomon Jesur 1 Unverheir. Ihr Sohn
Neiman Hertz 11 Unverheir. Bruder der Frau
Selig Jesur 35 Unverheir. Bruder des Mannes
Mendel Levy 28 Unverheir. Dienstmädchen
Jacob Levy 30 Unverheir. Dienstknecht
David Moses 40 Unverheir. Dienstknecht

Dear Alan,

Actually I found them in my own database (Danish
Jews) and you know what?
My source is JewishGen's Family Tree of the Jewish
People!
There are Bella's parents and Moshe Joshua's
parents and grandfather!
So you might find a relative on the Family Tree ...
Best wishes
