Beginning research on Danish ancestry requires a foundation in certain basics. Before beginning research in any new locality, a fundamental appreciation of the historical background of the area is always required. Most Danish records are organized by parish, so knowing the structure and geography of the country is important to finding the correct records. 

The patronymic system of naming and calendar changed from the Julian to the Gregorian calendar are discussed. Although fluent Danish is not required to research in Danish records, general genealogical terminology will be introduced.

Since genealogical research in Denmark relies heavily on church records, the new researcher should first understand how to find and use these books. From the time the Lutheran Church was established in Denmark in 1536, there have been changes in the format of the record books, but not in the essential content.
