Searching in Copenhagen Websites
Since Copenhagen was such a big city (about 500,000 in 1880), it had many parishes. Some were only open during certain periods of history while parish boundaries could change even though an ancestor didn’t move. Some of these websites should help you navigate the city along with the traditional censuses and parish records.
