Dipping Into Denmark Church Records: 1838 Birth of Hans Lauritzen Hede

My grandsons have Danish ancestry through their father.  His grandparents came from Denmark in 1906 and settled in Chicago.

FamilySearch has a nice list of 28 Denmark record collections, and many of them are indexed and have record images.  I am using t
he "Denmark Church Records, 1484-1941" collection for these records.

Today, I'm looking for the birth record of Hans Lauritzen Hede who was born 3 October 1939 in Gram, Haderslev, Denmark.  Here is the birth record summary image:

And the actual record image is:

The birth record is the 7th record down the page, and the first one recorded in 1839.  Here is the record:

The birth date is in the second column, the name of the child is in the 3rd column, the baptism date is in the 4th column, the parents names are in the 5th column, and the sponsors are in the 6th column.  .  Hans Lauritzen Hede was born 3 October 1838, baptized 2 December 1838, to parents Lauritz Pedersen Hede and Mette Chatrine Poulsdatter.  The record is from Gram, Haderslev, Denmark.

The source citation for this birth record is:

"Danmark Kirkebøger, 1484-1941," database with images, FamilySearch , ( : 16 March 2018), Lauritz Pedersen Hede in entry for Hans Lauritzen Hede; Birth, 03 Oct 1838, 6, Rigsarkivet, København (The Danish National Archives), Copenhagen.

Hans Lauritzen Hede (1838-1910) is my grandsons' 3rd great-grandfather.  He married Kirstine Sorensen (1842-1911) in 1863.

Note that these records are also on ($$) and ($$).
