Dipping Into Denmark Church Records: 1830 Marriage of Lauritz Pedersen Hede and Mette Catharine Roibol

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 the "Denmark Church Records, 1484-1941" collection for these records.

Today, I'm looking for the marriage record of Lauritz Pedersen Hede and Mette Catharine Roibol who were married 17 October 1830 in Oster Lindet, Haderslev, Denmark.  Here is the marriage record summary image:

And the actual record image is:

The birth record is the 4th record down the page, and numbered #43.  Here is the record:

The name of the bridegroom is in the 2nd column, the name of the bride is the 3rd column, the witness names are in the 4th column, the marriage date is in the 5th column ,and the place in the 6th column, with remarks in the 7th column. 

Lauritz Pedersen Hede of Oster Lindet was age 31, Mette Catharine Roibol of Terp was age 28, and the marriage was in the church at 
Oster Lindet, Haderslev, Denmark.

The column headings do not match the listings for Southern Denmark parish register marriages in the FamilySearch Wiki (

The source citation for this birth record is:

"Danmark Kirkebøger, 1484-1941," database with images, FamilySearch , ( : accessed 16 June 2020), Lauritz Pedersen Hede and Mette Catharine Roibet, 17 Oct 1830; pages 315-316, Marriage, Øster Lindet, Haderslev, Danmark, Rigsarkivet, København (The Danish National Archives), Copenhagen.

Lauritz Pedersen Hede and Mette Catharine Poulsdatter are my grandsons 4th great-grandparents. Other records give Mette's last name as Poulsdatter (daughter of Poul) rather than Roibet (the record above looks like Roiboll to me).  Hede and Roibol may be farm names, but most of the last name entries on this page are patronymic names.  

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