Fantastic, many thanks once again.  Would the 2nd column on the birth record be the baptism/christening, looks about 6 weeks later???

How wonderful Rootschat is, all this information in about 24 hours!

Yes, the second column is the baptism.

The birth of his mother is here:

To find the birth record of Chresten Smed you have to go here:
http://www.sa.dk/content/dk/ao-forside/find_kirkeboger

Find Kegnæs under "Vælg sogn". In the book covering 1811-1835 you will find him on Opslag 66 no. 27.

Some useful information on genealogy in Denmark:

In this part of the country many records are in german.

Thanks for those links found Bodil, and managed to get to the link for the 1811-1835 book but my computer gave me the choice of opening and mistakenly I opened in Notepad and now can't get past that to open in anything else. Any ideas?  I can try the link on my iPad and another computer shortly.

Hi there
Having all the entries I can find I really need a translator for the old Danish handwriting. I've tried  here in Australia, so far no luck.  There are professionals who might be able to help  at a cost of course, so I'm asking Rootschatters if there is anyone who could handle 3 entries for me please.
Cheers

Post the details here for us to have a go. It often helps to have more than one pair of eyes when reading difficult writing.

When you say post the details do you mean the links which take you directly to the entries.  The actual images I have downloaded are too big to go through  here I think.

Hans was born as Hans Chrestensen Smed on 11 September 1852.

I presume the 3 records are the ones posted here by Brilau?

Here is the translation for his birth record. The Danish records are very similar to the Swedish ones. There are a few missing words mainly because I cannot make them out, but someone else who is Danish perhaps can make them out and perhaps correct me.

Hans Christensen Smed, landbonde Christen Smed i Anhold och hustru Bodild född Hansdatter Sörensen ? ?

Faddrar
1 - Johan Johansson Lorenzen
2 - ? J.B Schmidt
3 - Kyrkan ? för Oddis




Hans Christensen Smed, farmer Christen Smed in Anhold and wife Bodild nee Hansdotter Sörensen ? ?

Godparents:
1 - Johan Johansson Lorenzen
2 - ? J.B Schmidt
3 - Church ? for Ødis
