Guide to Ågerup, København, Denmark ancestry, family history, and genealogy: birth records, marriage records, death records, census records, and military records.

History[edit | edit source]

The parish records begin in 1646, but there is a gap in the records from 1710 to 1730. Traditionally Ågerup and Kirkerup formed a chapelry. However, sometime between 1891 and 2000, the Hvedstrup-Fløng chapelry was dissolved. Fløng became its own chapelry and Hvedstrup was added here to form the Ågerup-Kirkerup-Hvedstrup chapelry. In addition to the records typically kept, the parish priest also kept mandtalslister from 1781-1836. These are similar to the Swedish mantalslängder. In this chapelry, they can be used to supplement the census and traditional parish records.
