Why Should I Look at This Collection?[edit | edit source]

This is an enumeration of all persons resident in the city of Aarhus on 25 October 1936. If you have family members who lived in Aarhus or may have had reason to be in Aarhus on that date you should consider looking at this collection.

What is in This Collection?[edit | edit source]

This collection is a registration of all persons in Aarhus, as well as persons temporarily present or absent. The collection consists of multiple forms. For details on the content of each form see What Can These Records Tell Me?

These records were created by the office of the Aarhus Magistrate's 1st division (Magistrat 1. afd.) tax authority (Skattevæsen). It is part of the Skattemandtalslister (tax census lists), 1885-1936. The content and arrangement of these records is very similar to the national census. Records are grouped by street, then by house number. Similar enumerations were made in 1933-1940, and 1948.

The Aarhus city archive has classified these records as follows. Each link is to the Aarhus city archive online catalog entry for the entity described.

Additional records and/or images may be added to this collection in the future.

I Found the Person I Was Looking For, What Now?[edit | edit source]

  • Add any new information to your records
  • Check the image the index was taken from to see if there is additional information
  • Make sure to fully transcribe and cite the record entry for future reference. Save or print a copy of the image.
  • Use the information to find more. For instance, use the age listed in the record to estimate a year of birth, if that is yet undetermined.
  • Use the information to locate the individual in church records, if appropriate

I Can’t Find the Person I’m Looking For, What Now?[edit | edit source]

  • Consult the Denmark Record Finder to find other records
  • People enjoyed a higher level of personal mobility in Denmark than in other countries due to the easier terrain and absence of laws restricting movement. A well-developed system of transportation existed which facilitated moving from one place to another
  • Consider alternate spellings for names, such as Peder for Peter, and Maria for Maren. Law regarding surnames were fully in effect at this time, but the person may have been recorded with a patronymic surname
  • When looking for a person with a common name, look at all the entries for the name before deciding which individual is correct. Use other information, such as place of birth, age, occupation, or names of parents, to determine which candidate is the correct person. If listed, a personal title may be a clue to property ownership or occupation, either of which might be noted in other records
  • Check for variants of given names, surnames, and place names. Transcription errors could occur in any handwritten record; also, it was not uncommon for an individual be listed under a nickname or an abbreviation of their name
