Understanding DDD census record information

Understanding DDD census record information

Hello all! Thanks to your help a few weeks ago, I found my g-grandfather Jens Kjerkemand Christensen b. 1872 Ørsted.

I've found him in the Dansk Demografisk Database, in the 1880 census, and need some help understanding what the last bit of this information means.

Randers, Rougsø, Ørsted, Ørsted By og Sogn, , et Hus, 112 - 1Fm

I get that this means they were living in Randers, Rougsø (old county), Ørsted city and parish, in a house. What I don't understand is what 112-1Fm means. Is that the microfilm #? Or is that a house number?

Additionally, do you know of a way to pinpoint an actual house or street in these census records?

Thank you!!

There is no way to pinpoint the actual house. For rural districts the numbering on the original census form just indicates the route taken by the census official:-(

I checked the original records. The 112 is just a sequential number added by the person doing the transscription. And the 1Fm means First Family in the house.

So - completely useless info:-))
