Jewish Men in the Marriage Register of Copenhagen 1735-1810
by Allan Falk
This is a list of Jewish men who 1735-1810 have paid the special fee "kopulationspenge" allowing them to contract marriages in Copenhagen. During this period there are no actual marriage records available for the Jerwish Community of Copenhagen. All men with a certain annual income were obliged to pay this fee (50 rix-dollar) and the actual marriage normally followed a few days after the payment. Hence the list to some extent remedies the lack of Jewish marriage records before 1810. The list has been created based on a register available at the City Archives ("Stadsarkivet") of Copenhagen.
