Extracts of Probate Records from Danish Towns

Project by Camilla Luise Dahl

Extracts of probate records from a selection of Danish towns are being transcribed and will be available as work progresses. Extracts will be given from 18 towns (see map) from across Denmark.

Each extract is a direct transcription of the original text and is in Danish, each heading and probate description is likewise in Danish as well as in English. A glossary of Early Modern Danish dress terms will be made available.

Editorial changes have been made to accommodate the modern reader e.g. Roman numbers have been changed to Arab: VIII =8, but the probates are otherwise transcribed to the letter.
From the probate records extracts of garments, dress accessories and in some cases textiles and various tools to mend, maintain or produce dress are given.
