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

History[edit | edit source]

When selecting this parish in the familysearch catalog, it will claim that the parish records begin in 1683. On, it will say that parish records begin in 1736. Both dates are incorrect. The earliest parish records are from 1693. It is the same collection in both places and this is simply a cataloging error on both sites.
