Dipping Into Denmark Church Records: 1823 Death and Burial Record for Anna Pedersdatter (1750-1823)

 My grandsons have Danish ancestry through their father.  His great-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 Burials, 1640-1917" collection for these records.

Today, I'm looking for the 1823 death and burial record of Anna Pedersdatter
in Viborg, Denmark:

Here is the burial record summary image:

So Anna Pedersdatter died 15 August 1823 and was buried 22 August 1823 in Viborg, Denmark, at age 73 years.  Her husband was named as Peder Jensen Hede in the record.

I clicked the link to browse the records, but could not find this particular record in the 392 images.  The document information above says "p290" but there are few page numbers, and image 290 is for 1821 records.  Images 301 and 302 have records for 1823, but there are none for August 1823.

The source citation for this confirmation record is:

"Denmark Burials, 1640-1917", database,   FamilySearch    ( : 20 February 2020), Anna Pedersdatter, 1823.

I have found no birth or marriage records for Anna Pedersdatter in these church records.

From the information I have Peder Jensen Hede was born about 1753, and married Anna Pedersdatter (1750-1823) before 1797.  Their son, Lauritz Pedersen Hede (1799-1858), married Mette Catherine Poulsdatter (1802-1878) in 1830.  Peder Jensen Hede and Anna Pedersdatter are my grandsons' 5th great-grandparents.

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

Just a thought ... Viborg was a county also at that time, not just a city. Perhaps she is in a smaller town? (My great-grandmother was from Viborg also, but in a small village not the city.)
