How do you find the "right" parish register?

Hi,

Is there a "correct" way to find the "correct" parish register when there was no church or parish records in the actual sogn? In other words, could people choose freely which church they went to for baptisms and similar, when there was no church in their sogn?

EXAMPLE: Parish records for Sønderup begin in 1719. In this case, I assume that this was when the church was built there. Prior to 1719, I see a few family members referred to in the register in Svenstrup, where records go back to 1691. But, most of my ancestors are not mentioned in this register meaning they went somewhere else. In Aars/Havbro records go back to 1701, but I do not see them there either...

Thanks for any advice,
Rick
