Guide to Ågeby, Maribo, Denmark ancestry, family history, and genealogy: birth records, marriage records, death records, census records, and military records.

History[edit | edit source]

Originally, Ågeby was annexed to Landet. By royal rescript dated 17 April 1688, Ryde parish was added as to the chapelry as an annex on 11 June 1692. Then on 30 August 1775 Ågby parish was closed by royal rescript and was incorporated into Landet entirely. The parish records are cataloged under Landet parish on www.sa.dk. Additionally, the priest over the Landet chapelry actually lived in Askø parish but was not the same person as the Askø priest. Starting on 2 March 1742, the chaplain lived in Landet, however.
